Moving on Up: Action Recruitment

Action Recruitment is an employment project for unemployed, black young men. Action West London is developing a recruitment agency focusing initially on helping black young men aged 16-24 years find employment.

Moving on Up



Supported by:

This is in response to research about youth unemployment commissioned by Trust for London. The research found that black young men at all educational levels were much more likely to be unemployed than young men from other ethnic backgrounds. Trust for London and the City Bridge Trust have funded 6 different ‘Moving on Up’ pilot projects across London to address this important issue.

Action West London Recruitment Agency will register ‘job ready’ unemployed young black men, help improve their CVs, improve interview techniques, search for and apply for jobs online while providing in work support.
