Opening Doors is a campaign run by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg to make access to jobs fair and open for all talented young people.

The campaign calls on businesses to sign up for the Business Compact and:

  • raise aspirations in local schools and communities by offering mentoring, talks and other career and skills based activities
  • ensure fair access to work experience and internship opportunities by paying the national minimum wage where appropriate or otherwise reasonable expenses
  • recruit openly and fairly, advertising opportunities instead of using informal networks

More information can be found on the campaign website.
