A new website aims to help 1 000 young job-seekers find work-experience opportunities in Flanders
Partners in the Flemish Werk@telier ESF project have launched a new website to help young job-seekers find work placements and training opportunities. Werk@telier’s focus is to help these young people avoid the trap of long-term unemployment, which is a real threat in the current economic crisis. The new website – www.youthatwork.be – allows 18- to 25-year-olds to sign up for work experience opportunities, while businesses can sign on to offer jobs and placements. The aim of the project, which is supported by the City of Antwerp and local employment organisations, is to help over 1 000 young people take their first steps into the workforce.
