Uptree is an online professional network & careers platform. We inspire and motivate young people with information on different career pathways, whilst up-skilling and connecting future talent with employers for face to face events and opportunities.
Our mission is to put industry at the forefront of careers education and for all young people to have access to opportunities to connect with multiple professionals before they leave education.
For students – It’s never too early to start thinking about your career. But with so many options to choose from, and so many paths to success, it’s hard to know where to begin. That’s where Uptree comes in. We’re a free professional networking platform designed to help you get started in the world of work. Get work experience, find apprenticeships and other opportunities, and begin your dream career.
For schools – Today’s school leavers face a plethora of choices. Not every school has the resources to help each student find the way to their dream career. Uptree offers the free careers programme your students need. We can help them meet leading employers, feel inspired about their career paths, find apprenticeships and get started on the road to professional success. Our school partnerships focus primarily on students aged 16-19 to support them as they face these choices, while our educational resources are also beneficial for our growing alumni network and under-16 educators.
For employers – As an employer, you want to attract the brightest young talent from the widest possible range of backgrounds. There’s a lot of untapped potential out there. But running an effective outreach programme in-house requires specialist expertise and extensive resource. That’s where Uptree can help. We’re already engaged with thousands of young people in schools across the UK. And we want to get you all talking.http://uptree.co
