United Utilities supports the North West's young people
It’s a figure which may surprise you. Across the North West alone there are 130,000 young people who aren’t in college, earning money or doing some kind of training.
They are officially known as ‘Neets’ – not in education, employment or training.
But, water company United Utilities - and a number of other utility firms are offering youngsters the chance to gain work experience and potentially get a job. UU’s pioneering scheme – developed with the government – is now being rolled out across the country.
