Help Upstart Projects shape the future of young people in employment!

Upstart Projects is looking to hear from anyone who has started work (20+ hours a  week) in the last few years about their  experience and what skills they feel they needed early on in their working life. This will be used to inform work by charities supporting young people transitioning to the world of work. We’re especially interested in those with a role in or related to Finance, Technology or the Creative Industries.

We are looking to discover what skills you wish you’d had before starting employment and what your employer was looking for when they were looking to hire you. 

We have two options:

1. A 45minute 1:1 interview via Zoom. We have limited spaces and so ask  you to complete an expression of interest first. We will be selecting people to represent our UK community as a whole wherever possible to ensure we collect a diverse range of voices. It would be ideal if you’ve  been working 20+ hours a week for around 2 years. If interviewed, we’re  providing a £20 voucher for your time.
 If you’re interested in this, the form is:

2. If you'd rather answer some questions in your own time, feel free to complete our online survey and be in with a chance to be selected for a £20 voucher... The survey is at:
