Uptree: The Professional Network Connecting Young People and Employers

Uptree was founded by teachers to help talented young people connect to professional networks and career pathways while still at school.

We connect employers across the UK with a diverse pool of Early Careers talent, helping them to raise awareness of their employer brand and demystify their industry to support the younger generation to explore and apply for career opportunities in their company.

We’re proud to work with leading employers including arm, Allen & Overy, Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, GCHQ, Google, IBM, J.P. Morgan and PwC.

We offer a free careers programme for students aged 16-19 to help them get started on the road to professional success. Through Uptree, students can:

  • Access free online courses and support for career development
  • Broaden their knowledge of career routes
  • Meet with leading employers
  • Access unique opportunities and events, including apprenticeships and work experience

What Schools Say About Us

Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.
