Our Mission

Create a world where businesses recruit young talent through shared values.

Our Story

Starting out as a one off job matching event for young people, the event has now evolved into a community for forward thinking SME businesses across the city who all share a common purpose to ‘recruit young talent and do good’.

We want to build a global community that hires talent based on shared values not vitae. We are redefining recruitment for businesses and young people and along the way we want to have some fun and feel good too.

The Get Hired Live events have been running for 5 years, they are run by The Prince’s Trust, who have been helping young people into employment for 40 years! Whilst we always look back on where we’ve come from with pride, it’s where we are going next that really gets us excited!

The Get Hired Team's Values

We know that young people are the future. We have a powerful plan to change the future of recruitment to grow your business and develop future talent.
We are passionate about supporting our people and redefining recruitment. We believe in doing the right thing, so we are always honest and as transparent as we can be. Everything is a learning experience after all.
We never settle. We get the job done and we get it done well. We innovate, we test, we redefine and then we innovate again. People evolve and so does our business.
We always look out for one another. We have empathy, we know we're all human, and know we can’t do any of this alone, we can all club together with positive vibes and outlook throughout.
We take the time to say thank you. Thank you to our members, young people and each other for being part of this movement. We don't take success for granted and we appreciate each other wherever we can.

Our Team

Our mission doesn’t stop with connecting the businesses and young people with just one job. We believe in developing young people through the A, B, C, D of jobs.

  1. A Job
  2. Better Job
  3. Career job
  4. Dream job

This could be within one organisation or multiple.

Our Get Hired team is committed to helping young people create their life’s work. We move fast, we have fun and we challenge each other. Most of all though we come together with a shared purpose of changing young lives which makes working here extremely rewarding. There’s a lot of work left for us to do, and we couldn’t do it without a single member of our team.

On our daily playlist we always like to blast out a bit of Heather… “What have you done today to make yourself feel proud”
