We are a social mobility charity dedicated to empowering 17-25 year olds, from socio-economically deprived areas, to achieve their full potential.

We work with industry and education to create accessible and equitable pathways into meaningful careers for all young people, with a specific focus on those from low social mobility backgrounds, who mainly  live in coastal and rural areas across the UK. 

The Talent Tap is a social mobility charity.

Our team work with schools and colleges to inspire ambitious 16-25 year old students, those in Year 12 upwards, to access our scheme, which can ultimately match them with prestigious and motivating employers. Providing insight, advice and mentoring alongside residential work experience, The Talent Tap process is a vital support for students who may not ordinarily be able to access to this kind of opportunity. We create a springboard for students to achieve their full potential within the business community, and we work cohesively to enable social mobility across the professions.
