Chief Executive, Big Youth Project
“It has often been said that when it comes to job hunting, it’s who you know, not what you know,” laments Jack Parsons. The Big Youth Project chief executive set out in 2016 to tackle this issue with his creation, Yourfeed, an online marketplace that connected young people with potential employers in a more meritocratic manner.
The site distinguished itself from competitors by focusing on showcasing and matching skills and personality with employers, rather than following the traditional CV and cover letter approach.
Jack has since gone on to found the Big Youth Project and is committed to creating
2 million ‘work-life experiences’ in the United Kingdom, with the plan to then take this mission global.
