CBI responds to Chancellor's Plan for Jobs

8 Jul 2020 01:16 PM

Dame Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General, yesterday said:

“The Chancellor’s jobs plan will be a much-needed down payment in young people’s futures.

“By investing in skills, the Government can lessen the potential scarring impact of the pandemic for the next generation.

“Business and Government must now work to deliver the Kickstarter Scheme simply and at speed.  There can be no time lost in preparing young people who are entering one of the toughest jobs markets we’ve seen in decades.”
