We know finding a job and succeeding in an industry is hard, confusing and lonely, especially if you are BAME, female and from a low-income background.
Who are we
We are Generation Success an award-winning social enterprise that partners with employers looking for qualified diverse talent to offer work experience, placements, mentoring and direct access to industry to connect talent with worthwhile career opportunities.
Our mission is to support people to be the best that they can be and increase the diversity of the UK workforce at all levels in industry.
We were formed as a result of the underrepresentation of diverse talent in industry. We started as a group of young people who wanted to be part of the solution. Our fundamental belief is that your birth should not define your career.
What we do
We create opportunities for leading businesses to engage with diverse talent through:
Coaching, mentoring, training and development activities
Industry events and recruitment programmes.
We have a network of 6,000 aspirational young ‘Dream Hunters’
Our purpose is to remove the barriers that prevent businesses and people of diversity to connect. We do this through:
1) Power Series, also known as our industry insider events
2) Careers days hosted at employers
3) Career Accelerator Programme
4) Speed mentoring
5) Graduate recruitment
6) Career City Conference
7) City of London Careers Week Programme
8) Mayors Fund
9) Summer Connect Awards

But we are also calling on #government to commit to extra funding, to ensure #schools and #colleges can plan for the long term. Our commissioner Alastair Da Costa, said:
“We welcome the drive to place #employers at the core of the programme (…) If employers work more closely with local schools and colleges this might also allow more individuals to stay where they grew up rather than moving away to get a better job.
However, extra long-term resources will be key to the success of these schemes. They cannot just be a sticking plaster to address the immediate devastating impact of #COVID on #jobs and #training.”
He also emphasised the need to focus on #students from the most #disadvantaged backgrounds, who receive the least training as adults yet face more barriers.
