Every individual deserves a chance. No one should be hindered because of where they grew up or the school they went to.
MyBigCareer are determined to break down barriers to social mobility and make a difference to young people’s lives.
Their mission is to provide free one-to-one career guidance to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and to break down barriers to social mobility. Advice is delivered by professionally qualified advisers volunteering from within the independent sector. These individuals are motivated by their shared passion for making career and educational opportunities available to all – regardless of background, affluence or connections.
