Can Your Organisation Help with a Major Research Project at The University of Sheffield?
1st December 2023
The University of Sheffield is leading a major research project entitled “The Transitions of Young Workers in the UK Labour Market: Consequences for Careers, Earnings, Health and Wellbeing” (ESRC Grant Reference ES/W009536/1).
The project investigates the ability of younger workers (who do not attend university) living in the UK to make successful transitions in the labour market. The project aims to improve work and employment outcomes for young people, and also for the employers who recruit them.
How can you help?
We are looking to conduct interviews with 20 employers in South Yorkshire. We are hoping to speak to Managing Directors/CEOs, operations managers and/or HR managers, or anyone with responsibility for recruiting & managing young people. We are also seeking to interview young people (aged 18-30) who haven't been to university, and would be keen to speak to any from your organisation who may be interested in participating.
What can we offer you in return?
We can provide you with labour market data on South Yorkshire, including benchmarking data.
We can act as a bridge between your organisation and other involved organisations, for example SYMCA, and the DWP who are stakeholders.
We will share all research findings with you.
We will produce a toolkit to help employers and other organisations support young people into employment.
