Helping employers to deliver their social impact goals
With acute and chronic skills shortages being reported by the majority of employers, becoming more inclusive, in who, and how you recruit, makes good business sense. But, where do you start?
More and more employers are putting social value and ESG at the heart of their businesses - but delivering on this can be easier said than done. We make it effortless to find diverse local talent, and deliver impact by providing a range of career development opportunities to local communities.
We can help you unlock new pipelines of diverse local talent, offer high impact volunteering opportunities for your employees and deliver measurable diversity and Inclusion impact gains for your organisation.
But why do we do this? Because we believe social mobility is driven by good work and inclusive employment. Our focus is on supporting youth career development in disadvantaged London Boroughs and making it easier for employers to find and hire diverse talent.

What we do
We know that good work is one of the main drivers for positive social change. So in September 2023, we launched goodwork.london, a FREE purpose driven jobs board, as a way to connect good employers to diverse local talent.
The platform champions employers who are demonstrating their commitment to being a responsible employer and delivering social value. So how do we connect diverse talent with purposeful employers?
We’ve made the platform free for purposeful employers. This means that any employer can share their jobs with our local talent pool.
We only share good jobs. This means no zero hour contracts, no jobs under living wage, and all jobs are direct from employers (so no recruiters).
We champion businesses who focus on inclusive hiring and put social impact first. Employer actions and commitments sit at the heart of a job search, and connect your directly with local talent.
We give you the tools to succeed. On the Employer Hub, we have a host of resources made in collaboration with our community partners to support you to implement more inclusive hiring processes, and achieve our goodwork commitments.
To create a diverse talent pool of local residents, we've build relationships with community partners across London, including schools, colleges, community organisations, social enterprises and charities.

Youth Careers Development Programme
Inclusive employment starts at the source and so alongside our jobs board we offer employers a *free managed service to help support the next generation of talent in London Boroughs. We support employers to build their career development offering from work experience to insight days and workshops, so that you can:
Build a pipeline of young, local talent
Demonstrate and deliver on your ESG/Social Value commitments
Provide your employees with inspiring local volunteering experiences
We've worked with a wide (and growing!) network of local schools and colleges to make connecting with local students as simple and effective as possible. So get involved today, and together we can ensure that London's young people have access to the development opportunities they need to thrive.
