10 years ago, whilst CEO of Marks & Spencer, Marc Bolland kickstarted a Movement of businesses, civil servants and charity leaders committed to helping young people struggling to get into employment.
Flash forward to 2023, Movement to Work has helped employers deliver more than 155,000 opportunities for those aged 16-30 facing barriers to work. Together, we create quality experiences for young people whilst building inclusive and diverse workplaces fit
for the future.
Reasons to Join the Movement
We work with some of the biggest employers in the UK including Accenture, BAE Systems, BT, Diageo, M&S, Manpower, Marriott, The Department for Work and Pensions, Tesco and Unilever, amongst others. We’ve spoken to some leading business figures about the benefits they’ve seen from their involvement and why they’re proud to support Movement to Work.
Providing life-changing experiences
There is no better way to show the true value of youth employability programmes than hearing some of the real-life stories right at the heart of it. We caught up with some of the amazing young people who have overcome barriers to work and are now thriving in their roles across Accenture, BAE Systems, Diageo, M&S, Manpower, Marriott, Unilever and The Department for Work and Pensions.

Time to make your mark
Our young people need us now more than ever, with nearly a million young people not in education, employment or training. So to mark our 10th anniversary, we are showcasing the power of the Movement. Hear first-hand from employers about what they’ve gained through their involvement, alongside the young people whose lives have been changed through being given that all-important chance to shine.
