The first steps into work are a vital building block in all young peoples lives, we’ll work with partners to promote part time working opportunities for 14 to 16 year olds and make the process of applying for work permits for young people smoother and more efficient.
It shouldn’t be as difficult and cumbersome as it is in Doncaster to formally employ a young person in a part time role. Many of us often hark back to our Saturday jobs and the freedom it gave to make our own choices in life at an early age. The current process of employing a young person is overly bureaucratic in Doncaster, this needs changing and the benefits of part time work for young people needs promoting to both young people and employers. Employers seem to have forgotten the benefits of employing young people and have misconceptions about the rules.
