What is Movement To Work?

Movement to Work (MtW) is a not-for-profit coalition of UK employers, youth-outreach organisations, training providers and government allies – all aiming to level the playing field for young people aged 16-30 facing barriers to work.

We work with employers to design and implement brilliant youth employability programmes. As a result, young people get quality work experiences and employers get access to fresh, sustainable, and diverse talent.

With hundreds of organisational members, Movement to Work has a proven track record of driving change with more than 155,000 opportunities delivered to date. Collectively we have provided young people with diverse and empowering experiences ranging from hospitality to engineering, with regional hubs working in London, the Midlands, North East and North West to make a real difference nationwide.

We help #YoungPeopleWork – it works for them, it works for business, it works for society.


Our PURPOSE is to work with partners and employers to create great opportunities for young people to build their careers.


Our MISSION is to level the playing field for all young people by removing barriers to employment through quality work-placements and other job opportunities.
