Commenting on the need, to engage with young people chief executive of the firm Albert Ellis said that young jobseekers who are failing to seek professional careers advice are affecting businesses and the recruitment industry.
"We need to engage young people in their career choices early and in a focused way to ensure we get the right talent in the right places," he remarked.
