New app to provide youth workers with interactive educational tool for young job seekers.
IMImobile, in partnership with Telefonica UK and Streetspace, has today launched an iPad app designed to equip youth workers with a tool for helping young job seekers to find employment.
Having funded a number of projects aimed to improve communities across the UK as part of its Think Big Project, Telefonica UK approached IMImobile with the opportunity to develop an iPad app on behalf of Streetspace; and initiative, which promotes the personal and social development of young people.
The app aims to provide users with essential information, from the early stages of pairing skills with potential jobs, finding jobs, managing expectations and the interview process, as well as dealing with the issue of unemployment.
Furthermore, with definable parameters and the use of IMImobile’s iPad development kit, the app is built to deliver tailored content to help users find their first job.
Alex Klose, head of marketing at IMImobile, commented: “With iPads increasingly being integrated with how people learn, it is important to provide young people with the correct tools to assist with the transition from education to career. At IMImobile we believe in investing in the future and we’re delighted to work with Telefónica UK and Streetspace in developing an iPad app that helps youth workers to educate young people, so that they can start their career and shape their future.”
Nicky McGroarty, head of Supply Chain at Telefónica UK, also added: “We have been delighted to work with IMImobile and Streetspace on this important project. Giving young people the tools to help craft their own future is an important part of our Think Big initiative. What’s great about the app is that through the use of technology, youth workers can demo to young people whenever and wherever on the move - a great flexible solution in this digital age.”
