Morrison Utility Services becomes a Youth Friendly Employer 2nd May 2019

Morrison Utility Services becomes a Youth Friendly Employer

 Morrison Utility Services has received the Youth Friendly Employer Charter from Youth Employment UK. The presentation was made by Michael Tomlinson MP, at an All Party Parliamentary Group meeting discussing youth employment at the House of Lords this week. Morrison Utility Services received the Charter alongside our sector skills body Energy and Utility Skills and client Cadent. 

This accreditation recognises our commitment to working with young people to offer quality employment and rewarding career opportunities in Utility services. Our membership of Youth Employment UK brings us into contact with a large audience of young people who can help shape our approach in raising awareness of the Utilities sector. It is also enabling us to collaborate with employer members including Cadent to inspire young people to pursue a career in Utilities. 

In becoming a Youth Employment UK member we are pushing forward our support for EU Skills’ Inclusion Commitment. Morrison Utility Services was one of 32 companies to pledge its support to the Commitment when it was launched in February. EU Skills’ research shows an increasing youth gap; only 8% of the sector’s workforce is currently under 24, compared to 12% nationally. 

Morrison Utiltiy Services HR Director Colin Jellicoe comments: “We work hard to provide excellent career paths for young people in our business. We also make time to go out into the community to explain the sheer variety of opportunities on offer; our schools workshops and work experience placements offer the chance to see where young people can realise their full potential and enjoy a fulfilling, life-long career in the Utilities sector. As a youth friendly employer our work will continue alongside strong allies in Youth Employment UK, EU Skills and Cadent.”
