ABOUT The Movement

At some point in each of our lives, we are all reliant on being presented with an opportunity…

Movement to Work operates in a world of opportunity and seeks to break the vicious ‘no experience – no job’ cycle that is preventing young people, not currently in education, employment or training, from stepping onto the career ladder. By supporting organisations in providing quality vocational employment and work placement opportunities, Movement to Work helps to drive both business performance and bring about lasting social change.

How we work

We work with employers to find the best solution for their organisation; either in-house with delivery through their own resource or through a training provider to support them in delivering their programme(s).

Through our network of partners, including training providers and youth outreach organisations, we can link unemployed young people with employers. By equipping organisations with the tools to successfully deliver a vocational employment or work experience programme, we ensure that the next generation of talent is being provided with the skills to succeed, positively impacting business performance and driving social good.


A strong relationship with government: we are actively working in partnership with government departments and offer a collective voice on matters of policy. 


Our model works: Movement to Work has a proven track record of driving social mobility with more than 175,000 opportunities delivered nationwide. These are diverse and empowering experiences ranging from hospitality to engineering with more than 89% (based on 2022 delivery) of young people going on to secure employment or further education and training.


A national network of organisations that shares best practice and drives innovation. Our online forums for learning draw on the diverse experiences of our members and pioneers across the sector to maximise positive outcomes.



Access to a sustainable and diverse talent pipeline: our partner network provides organisations with direction and expertise for effective methods of sourcing talent and placement delivery models.

Maximising the business benefit: by gathering ROI data and understanding the impact of vocational and work experience placements on diversity and inclusion, we have expanded the social impact case for placement programmes.
