TalkTalk which is a Telecommunications business with 2000+ employees has partnered with the tech for good company The Youth Group to work towards becoming Youth Verified®.
The Youth Group (which is the UK's largest community of young people) has approved TalkTalk to start the process towards becoming a Youth Verified® organisation.
What is Youth Verified®?
Youth Verified® is a verification status and process developed by The Youth Group with the support of one of the largest endorsed consultancy companies in the world alongside over 2,000 young people.
Youth Verified® was created to breakdown and understand how 'youth-first' an organisation truly is when it comes to the wants, needs and challenges of young people in the UK.
Over 300 companies have successfully become Youth Verified® with The Youth Group and now TalkTalk joins the list of working towards Youth Verified®.
They will undertake the THRIVE formula that has been developed which is the underlining science behind what makes Youth Verified® work.
Who are TalkTalk?
TalkTalk are a leading organisation in the Telecommunications industry.
They decided to work towards becoming Youth Verified® because they understand the importance of young people in today's world and want to create a meaningful, inclusive and youth-first place for young people to work, learn and thrive.
What will Youth Verified® bring to TalkTalk?
Once TalkTalk has completed the rigorous and in-depth Youth Verified® process, they will successfully become and be announced as Youth Verified® to our 1.7million youth community and corporate partners.
This builds trust contracts with young people as currently trust is not being seen with employers in the eyes of youth today.
Young people actively looking for opportunity in our community will then granted access to TalkTalk for jobs, programmes, bootcamps, events and everything else that TalkTalk offers young people.
On average, our Youth Verified® partners see a 120% increase in applications from young people aged 18-30, once they have successfully become Youth Verified®.
