Marissa Watts is the CEO of Change Agents UK, a Charity and not-for-profit organisation. They help recruit young people into ethically-driven organisations that have a sustainability focus. Unlike recruitment agencies, their job doesn’t end when the employee starts their new role. In fact, getting the job is just the beginning.
The Change Agents UK team are driven to make a bigger impact. They want the young people they recruit to have as big an impact in the World as possible. They want each graduate to have the best chance of becoming an agent for change. Their philosophy is simple, yes, so rare; we were drawn to it.
Marissa and the Change Agents UK team recognise that crossing the chasm from education to employment can, for some, be a bit of a leap. If you think back to your experience, the World of academia and the ‘real’ World of work are different beasts entirely.
