Yorkshire-based investment fund Phase 37 has backed the launch of a new free Facebook-style website which aims to help young jobseekers in Leeds and the surrounding areas to find employment. is the first site of its kind to specialise in the recruitment for 16-25 year olds across a wide range of sectors and the whole range of employment options; full-time, part-time, temporary and permanent.

Following the model of the hugely popular Facebook and MySpace social networking sites, jobseekers create their free, personalised profiles which they use to apply for jobs online.
Leeds is the prime city to launch such a site; the city has the largest student population in the UK and is the biggest commercial centre in the region – meaning there are thousands of under-25s looking for jobs and the country’s major employers looking for new recruits at all times.

Ed Clothier, managing director of Employgo said:
“The launch of Employgo is great news for employers looking to cut recruitment costs in this particularly sensitive economic climate.
“The catering and hospitality trades in particular have a high demand for good-quality candidates across a range of part-time and temporary positions and at Employgo, we understand how best to communicate with this difficult-to-reach audience.”
There are already plans in place to launch nationwide following the launch in Leeds. Other cities in Yorkshire, including Sheffield, Bradford, York, Hull and Huddersfield will be the first to benefit from the Employgo service.

About is a 100% web-based employment resource aimed at 16-25 year olds looking for temporary, part-time and even full-time jobs.
Registering to use the site is completely free (there are no hidden charges) – and more importantly it’s really easy and it’s fun.
