Greater Manchester Youth Network Talent Match Survey – Young People

The following questions will help us to learn about the experience young people aged 18-24 have when trying to find work. The information you provide will help to develop ideas for a new and different way of supporting young people to increase their chances of finding work that could be funded as part of the Talent Match programme that will start in the summer of 2013.
