Driving greater social mobility by helping prepare young people for the workplace

Globally, 242 million young people aged 15–24 are unemployed or work while living in poverty. 85 percent of UK employees think communication, problem-solving, creativity, leadership and teamwork skills are important for work, but not all young people leave school with these skills.

Children from disadvantaged backgrounds are least likely to acquire these skills  at school.

With more than 61,000 people spread across more than 300 offices globally – often in areas with low social mobility – Capita is well placed to help young people develop the skills they need to get into work.

Working in partnership with schools, colleges and charities, we proactively seek to give young people the knowledge and confidence to reach their full potential.
