Aileen Campbell, MSP for Clydesdale has added her backing to the Scottish Government’s campaign to get more young people into employment, training or work experience.
The Make Young People Your Business campaign aims to highlight the benefits employers can enjoy through hiring unemployed young people, including Scottish Government funded recruitment incentives.

Commenting, Aileen said: "The 26th-30th August is Make Young People Your Business Week. This is a very important issue, particularly for more rural communities like those we have in Clydesdale. I am calling on Clydesdale employers to consider how they can help get young people into jobs, whether through work experience, training or employment.
"I hosted a jobs fayre earlier in the year, opened by the Minister for Youth Employment, Angela Constance. This enabled young people to engage with employers, and the employers to see the dedicated and enterprising youth in Clydesdale. I was struck by the number of 16-24 year olds who came along, wanting to find work in the local area to allow them to remain living in Clydesdale. We have issues with people, particularly younger people, having to leave the areas they grew up in, in order to find employment.
"There is advice and financial help available through the Scottish Government, in order to assist companies willing to invest in our young people and our future. I am sure that Clydesdale businesses will play their full part in this investment."
