Supported by Citi Australia and Citi Foundation, the Citi New Recruits program has been tackling youth unemployment, linking real skills development with real jobs since 2013. The program specifically targets youth who are unemployed or at risk of becoming unemployed following school, from lower socio-economic communities.
At the core of the program is a 3-week job-ready intensive training program, which contributes to successful job placement outcomes. The program also encompasses a number of key pre and post program activities, including candidate screening, mentorship and leveraging off partner services such as WPC Group’s employer network and job placement services.
The Citi New Recruits program has achieved significant results. In its first year, 127 young Australians were supported with 92% completing the program, and subsequently, 83% engaged in employment, or further education or training.
The program has gone from strength to strength since 2013, delivering outstanding results in Sydney and Melbourne.
