Career Ready is a UK-wide charity linking employers with schools and colleges to prepare young people for the world of work. We give students from disadvantaged backgrounds the confidence, skills and networks to achieve their potential. We work in 400 schools and colleges across the UK, offering programmes delivered by employer volunteers and based on four pillars - masterclasses, mentoring, workplace visits and work placements. We are a partner of the government-funded Careers & Enterprise Company, chosen as one of the organisations to lead the national expansion of employer-led careers education.
Career Ready has grown considerably, from supporting 3,000 young people to reaching 45,000 young people over the last three years, and we have ambitions to treble our impact over the next three years. It is an exciting time to join our organisation, and help change the lives of young people around the UK.
