Talent Match North East

Talent Match

As a young person do you feel that opportunities may be passing you by and employers don’t understand some of the issues you may be facing? Talent Match North East is a new approach to tackling youth unemployment that has been designed with young people themselves.


If you are aged between 18 and 24 and have been out of education, employment or training for 12 months or more help might be available.


Talent Match has youth coaches that are available to support and guide you with training, work placements and other opportunities that will help you to plan your route into employment.


The support that youth coaches can provide is effective and meaningful.  It could help you decide and put into action the kind of future you want.

Talent Match Area

If you are a young person looking for support to get into work then you should contact one of our youth coaches who would love to meet you to discuss your needs. To find out more call 0191 242 4898, email talentmatch@thewisegroup.co.uk or visit www.talentmatchne.co.uk
