About us

Prospectus, recruiters to the charity and not for profit sector, and young people charity the EY Foundation, are working in partnership to help introduce young people to employers who are currently offering roles on the Government’s Kickstart scheme.

The EY Foundation will provide you with high quality employability support during your Kickstart placement, with invaluable workshops including teambuilding, networking, CV writing and mock interviews, to  prepare you for future employment. This is a real opportunity to receive valuable paid work experience from a local employer and improve your knowledge in the charity sector.

EY Foundation

We work to give young people the skills, experiences and support to get the jobs they really want, and connect employers to talented young people across the UK.

We also help social enterprises scale up sustainably, creating more opportunities for young people.

Despite the challenges of 2020 the EY Foundation has had a record year and supported almost 7,000 young people and over 160 social enterprises between July 2019 and June 2020.


Established for over 60 years, Prospectus connect talented people with purpose driven and not for profit organisations.

We are a registered B-Corp, accreditered for our approach to the environment, sustainablity, diversity and market leading recruitment business where none of our team are paid commission, enabling us to focus on delivering a high quality service.

Last year we supported over 700 people with their career in the sector working with over 350 non-profit organisations.
