Scotsman Interview with Nick Price - the original "Neet"
Speaking to the Scotsman newspaper, Nick Price discusses Bright Purple's future, including the launch of the new Bright Purple Academy, the recruitment market and international expansion.
"Nick Price isn’t one for adopting false airs or graces. “I’m an original Neet,” says the co-founder of Edinburgh recruitment firm Bright Purple Resourcing – referring to the acronym used to describe young people not in education, employment, or training. “If there had been such thing as a Neet in 1977 then it would have been me. But it didn’t stop me,” he laughs.
Price and Bright Purple’s chairman – City recruitment veteran Peter Flaherty – have decided to take on six so-called Neets on a six-month contract and will offer at least two of them a job at the end of the experience, which will be supported by Scottish Government-funded training."
