The CBI responded to the Government launch of a new National Careers Service (NCS).Dr Neil Bentley, CBI Deputy Director-General, said:

“We need to inspire people, especially young people, about career options and all the job opportunities that are open to them. It’s a good idea to bring together high-quality, practical information on a national careers website, to help them make informed decisions about their future.

“But, for the NCS to be truly effective, it must have a programme of continuous engagement with businesses to ensure that impartial careers advice and guidance is always up-to-date and relevant.

“The business community has an appetite to play a bigger role – CBI research shows that over half of companies want to be more involved in delivering careers advice.”
