The Volunteering Platform brings togeher volunteers from Livery Companies, membership organisations and employers to help schools with career talks, employability days, extracurricular activities and school governance.

Placer

Democratising work experience

Too many students graduate into unemployment or underemployment. This is what led us to innovate Placer, a new business model that works with Universities to scale up work experience to increase student employability to move into worth while work.

Charity IT Association

Mobilising technology volunteers into charities

We innovated a simple, easy-to-consume entry point for Charities to engage with the Volunteers who were willing to help them to get more advantage from their IT. Our vision is a world in which Charities are able to harness the full potential of technology to increase their potential for good.

Giving schools access to volunteers

Several students stayed after the talk, one of them saying the speaker's message has 'changed her life' given that she was unsure what post-16 route to take and she has clearly taken inspiration from the speaker!

Mobilising technology volunteers into charities

You have done a fantastic job for us in building and launching the Charity IT Association. Proactive, creative and flexible: you truly justify the term “partner” rather than just ”vendor”.
