Participate in the survey and prize draw!

We want to hear about your experiences of unemployment and job hunting. By taking the survey, you help us develop our employment services for our members. We use the results in the development of services by YTK Association that support our members’ employment.

Are careers becoming more diverse? What does the future look like for traditional paid employment, job hunting, earnings-related daily allowance or combining jobs?
