Early Careers, Done Right.

At Springpod, we help young people discover their futures through career exploration and real-world employer interactions. Supported by a strong network that includes the UK’s largest employers, we provide unbiased careers guidance to schools and students.

Springpod

In Pursuit of a Noble Mission

It’s no secret that careers education in schools has always been a bit challenging to deliver. Most 16-18-year-olds leave school having never properly engaged with employers and with very little idea about what they want to do when they ‘grow up’- we know we did!

Work Experience Basics

Our journey towards building the ‘perfect’ early careers network started with one goal – to allow every student to connect meaningfully with top employers throughout their education; preparing them for their dream career and enabling them to succeed in securing it. 

Values We Stand By

integrity

Integrity

We don’t take our commitments lightly.  We will always uphold the integrity of the data that you provide us and safeguard your privacy at all costs.

Trust

We strive to be network built on trust. We will provide reliable insights and unparalleled service to everyone on Springpod – from students to employers.

Quality

We will never be satisfied with ‘good enough’. We welcome challenges and often go above and beyond the call of duty to deliver the best for our network.

innovation

Innovation

We don’t rest on our laurels. We question conventions and continuously seek innovative solutions that can change early careers and make it better for everyone.

The Story So Far

We have lift off!

In the summer of 2016, armed with our lofty vision, we set up shop in a dingy garage backing onto the railway in Clapham North. Surviving mainly on tins of Heinz beans, we built Springpod 1.0 and launched it in February 2017. 

Within a year, all of the specialist STEM schools within the pilot group were already using the platform. It was time to look further – mainstream secondary schools beckoned.

The
Present

Booster mode: ON

Fast forward to today, and we are now a team of 14 – all passionate about supporting tomorrow’s talent by providing access to unique experiences and opportunities with employers at the top of their game.

We partner with the most exciting employers in the country, support royal initiatives, work hand-in-hand with leading charities, technical schools and livery companies and are incredibly proud to provide opportunities and interactions for tens of thousands of students every year. 

To infinity and beyond . . .

The future is bright! And the Springpod network continues to grow, with new employer partners, schools, students and delivery partners joining us every month.

As our ‘lofty goal’ gets closer, we are excited to look beyond the UK, as our employer partners ask us to support them in their other territories.  No matter where we go, we remain steadfast in our mission to give students access and opportunity to engage meaningfully with a stellar network of employers, to discover and secure their dream career.  

Join us on our mission.
