LTSB is a social mobility charity that prepares and supports bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds into meaningful roles with major firms. We make sure those at risk of under-employment find careers equal to their ambition and ability, and can contribute from their first day on the job.

We focus attention on communities where potential often struggles to find opportunity. Since our inception in 2012, we have developed a proven model which is based on four key stages:

  1. Promoting opportunities to those from backgrounds that are not normally reached
  2. Preparing young people for the workplace, and the workplace for young people
  3. Placing candidates in careers, stewarding and contextualising their application
  4. Providing pastoral care – an additional support network for the first year of their career.

In January 2024 we released our new 5-year Organisational Strategy, which lays out our ambitious plans to grow and strengthen our work across the UK. Working towards our vision of a world where all young people can choose their careers, we’re continuing to prepare and place more young people from disadvantaged backgrounds into work. The strategy centres around three overarching objectives:

  • Ensure more young people are placed into meaningful careers
  • Expand our programmes
  • Create a culture of high standards, well-being and belonging
