Tom Lyas

We've worked with YP since 2015, when the company was founded. It was immediately clear that YP and Browne Jacobson shared the same values, ethos and purpose and that YP were the right partner to help us achieve our strategic objectives within the early-careers market. YP have significantly exceeded expectations when it comes to delivering school outreach and apprenticeship attraction campaigns - they've helped us secure high calibre, diverse talent time and time again. In addition, YP's ability to target under-represented student groups has been a critical part our firm being ranked No.1 in The Social Mobility Foundation's Employer Index for two years in a row. We can't recommend (or thank) Dan and YP enough

We have been working with Young Professionals for a number of years now and have been really impressed with the results they have been bringing in for us. They have been able to attract, source and recruit a number of students for some of our very hard to fill regions quickly and efficiently upon our request. They have bought us some very impressive targeted numbers to our office insight evenings and it's been great to see many parents and teachers join as well. The Young Professionals Platform combined with their unbelievable network of schools and students has helped us to enhance our brand identity to thousands of students but also to put us in front of such a high volume of females and diverse candidates at a national scale
