The Big Academy Launches Campaign to Ditch the CV
Youth unemployment has been a big issue in this country for decades, so why are we still relying on old fashioned recruitment techniques? A CV is great if you have a sparkling career, but if you are just starting out after School, College or Uni we think you need a different approach to grab that employer's attention!!
The Big Academy is a community interest company operated by ZootAlore! Group. We have been helping young people get into work since 2004, we understand what employers want and what young people need to gain that job. Most young people are more comfortable building a Facebook profile than a CV, we want to capture that confidence and turn it into employability, and also encourage employers to present themselves to young people on the platform.
Showcasing Big Academy Employer Profiles
ZootAlore! Group is proud to release a new and improved Big Academy profile functionality now with support for employers. Extend your companies brand and personalise your Big Academy profile with pictures, promotional videos and most importantly any opportunities you wish to share with young people who are on the lookout for work.
The Big Academy is a not-for-profit community interest company which arose from a desire to improve the youth employment situation by improving routes into employment for all young people regardless of their social or academic background. For more information, please visit www.bigacademy.org.
