MyBigCareer Future Makers are equality-focussed businesses and influential individuals opening up opportunities for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve the future they deserve.
Bringing businesses together
We’re inviting businesses of all sizes to join Future Makers, an outcome-driven collaboration which aims to harness the skills of employee volunteers, open up workplace opportunities and connections, and provide funding to enable us to support more pupils at schools in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities.
Our founding Future Makers are leading global private equity firm Advent International and global systematic investment manager Aspect Capital. Learn more about how MyBigCareer Future Makers are making a difference here.
Unlocking the social mobility crisis
We believe that partnerships with business are fundamental to unlocking the social mobility crisis facing young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. If your business is committed to equality of opportunity for disadvantaged young people and to improving representation in your workforce, we’d love to talk to you about becoming a Future Maker. Please get in touch at Tom@mybigcareer.org.
High quality Career Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is proven to inspire young people from an early age and challenge stereotypes relating to gender, class or ethnicity – but 82% of teachers don’t have sufficient information to be confident giving careers advice.
As a MyBigCareer Future Maker your business will be joining like-minded companies and their employees helping us support schools in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities who are struggling to provide CEIAG due to lack of resources and knowledge. But the value flows both ways.
We’ll help you shout about your ESG credentials and proactive approach to diversity, equality and inclusion. We’ll train your employees to be volunteer Career Coaches, and we’ll work together to create workplace experiences for young people who are held back through lack of connections and access to opportunities.
As a Future Makers member we ask you to make a minimum annual commitment of £5,000, with a range of additional options and donation levels depending on the scale of our collaboration with your business.
Our entry level package provides:
Opportunities for employee volunteering and Insight Day hosting
Licence to use the Future Makers logo in your corporate comms
Recognition of your company’s support on our website and socials
Promotion of your workplace opportunities to our network of schools and alumni
Let’s talk about the future
