Your Life is guided and supported by a group of leading companies and major UK employers, whose support is central to achieving the aims of the campaign.
We are delighted to support Your Life in its mission. As a global consultancy our biggest areas of growth in terms of business and hiring are in analytics and big data. Maths GCSE alone just doesn’t cut it and we find that most of the applicants and most of the recruits in that area come from abroad. It will be fantastic when we’re able to rebalance and have a much broader proportion of home grown talent in both our UK business and our offices around the world.ers.www.atkearney.com

We are lucky to have brilliant engineers at Ford throughout the UK. However many of them are closer to retirement than they are to graduation. If we are to have any hope as a country of filling the engineering pipeline that lots of people talk about in my kind of sector we need lots more people to be thinking about taking science and maths. It’s reaching beyond all the brilliant engineering programmes that we support to talk to the unusual suspects. That’s why we’re supporting Your Life.www.ford.com
