Spark! Kick starting careers

Spark! finds inspiring opportunities for young people to gain work experience, understand the labour market and develop confident enterprise and employability skills.  WLB has been a supporter and advocate of Spark’s work since the early 1990s.

Spark! traces its formation back to 1980 and is one of the oldest education-business charities in the UK working on employability and enterprise skills.  In a long standing partnership the charity has been hosted by GSK in Brentford since 1987.

With roots in London Borough of Hounslow Spark! now works with schools and employers across North-West London and beyond. Focussed on delivering measurable social impact, the charity is reliant on the generous support of 1000+ employee volunteers each year. To find out more and get involved visit
