About Us

Who we are

Worktree is a tree of living knowledge about work.

We are a trunk of 1,500 volunteers helping young people find out what work is really like by answering their questions honestly.  We attend sessions in schools organised by a small team of paid Worktree staff, governed by trustees from different branches of employment.

Our answers are based on our own experiences of growing up and going to schools (the roots), experiencing different employers (the  branches) and different jobs (the leaves).

Worktree receives funding mainly from schools and businesses, and spends it all on meeting the needs of our beneficiaries – young people and employers.  As volunteers, aim to develop their career awareness, aspirations and employability skills.
