Businesses - Form the Future CIC

future-proof your talent pipeline

By working with Form the Future, you’ll gain access to thousands of students in Cambridge and beyond who bring fresh ideas to your business

For businesses

We want to equip young people with the experience and skills they will need to succeed in their career of choice, and enable businesses to recruit skilled workers locally.
Good careers education needs regular contact with local businesses, who can offer practical support and advise on the skills students will need to succeed. Form the Future provides a crucial link between schools, businesses and young people to improve social mobility, raise young people’s ambitions, and safeguard businesses’ future in the area.
Unlock the door to schools across the Eastern region and promote your company and industry.

Engaging your future workforce starts here. By working with us, we’ll help you to future-proof your talent pipeline, building your employer brand and making it easier to recruit. We’ll help you develop your employees’ leadership, management and mentoring skills as they guide young people into early careers by volunteering with us.
