Graduate unemployment has soared by 44% to a decade high of 1 in 10 and recent figures suggest that there are over 1 million young people in the UK not in employment, education or training (NEETs). Despite this, there are potentially half a million vacant positions in the UK. 56% of recruiters say work experience is the most important quality a candidate can possess.
The market is demanding a solution that gives companies and young people a cost effective and non-binding solution to employment requirements allowing them to try each other out before they commit to more permanent arrangements.
With young people wanting to use the immediacy and power of internet based solutions, coupled with the explosive growth of social networking sites such as Facebook, there is a gap in the market between expensive low functionality ‘job boards’ and business networks like LinkedIn. WEXO is a socially responsible, disruptive technology which fills this void.
