Movement to Work operates in a world of opportunity and seeks to break the vicious ‘no experience – no job’ cycle that is preventing young people not currently in education, employment or training from stepping onto the career ladder.

By supporting organisations of all shapes and sizes to unlock the potential of these young people by offering quality work placement opportunities, Movement to Work helps both to drive business performance and bring about lasting social change.

Movement to Work is funded by ESF-funding and the AEB.
