There are a number of reasons why hundreds of companies have become Career Ready partners.


We have over a decade of success working with employers to prepare young people for the world of work. Our partners know they will be well supported and are joining an effective programme that has quality assurance measures built in.

The approach with Career Ready is that we are working together to define and develop the programme in Perth & Kinross. It is being done ‘with us’ rather than ‘to us’.

From marketing to multi-national banks, no one else can match Career Ready for the range and size of businesses that work with us.

We would encourage all businesses to engage with Career Ready. They have the potential to help us all to make a good and positive difference. On top of that, they are great people to work with!
