LinkedIn joins our ‘Get into Work’ mentoring initiative
‘Get into Work’ was launched by MyKindaFuture and the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) in March 2021, to actively support young jobseekers into employment, as one of the hardest hit groups by the implications of Covid. The mentoring initiative is supporting unemployed young people across the UK into work and has recently expanded to also support those looking to start up a business, following the announcement of Sage joining as founding partner.
‘Get into Work’ is delivered through MyKindaFuture’s mentoring platform, Connectr, and supports our future workforce through an incredibly challenging climate as we look to ‘Build Back Better’. The initiative provides partner organisations the opportunity to actively support those most in need through mentoring.
We are delighted to announce LinkedIn have joined ‘Get into Work’ as another partner in the initiative to make a real difference to those who need it most. LinkedIn will provide both mentoring support and employability content to jobseekers on Connectr, launching them into their future career.
LinkedIn joins existing partners such as Accenture UK, KPMG LLP UK, Grant Thornton LLP UK, Skanska, Clyde & Co, Cisco UK&I and City of Bradford Council who are playing an active role in delivering the advice, tools and skills needed to expand the employment prospects of people of all backgrounds.
