Talent Match

Breaking News

Greater Manchester Talent Match is a Big Lottery-funded programme bringing together the private, public and voluntary sectors to support young people aged 18-24 who have been out of employment, education or training for twelve months or more and who need extra support to help them along their pathway to work. The programme was co-designed with young people and our Youth Panel are at the heart of decision-making throughout.

Talent Coaches are providing what young people told us was missing from other youth employment schemes - a highly personalised, holistic approach that supports them to overcome personal and practical barriers to employment.  

 

Employer engagement is at the heart of our programme and we have some great employers working with us. We have created the Greater Manchester Opportunities Hub, an online portal bringing together information about existing opportunities available for young people with those we are sourcing exclusively for young people on the programme. We recognise the value of volunteering opportunities to young people and are working to further develop these within the region.
