As seen and heard on

Our purpose

We believe that talent is normally distributed in our world, but opportunity is not.

The first career opportunity can be the difference between someone realising their full potential in life and not.

We exist to make sure everyone gets that first opportunity.

Some of the highlights to date

Our mission is to make more career opportunities, more accessible to more first-time job seekers, more often.

Our values


Be autonomous but take accountability.


Do your thing but be totally transparent.


Be cognitively curious about everything.


Embrace the journey of lifelong learning.


Be helpful and humble, always.

"We needed high quality interns at short notice, and thanks to excellent shortlisting service from the team at Trusted Interns, and a marketplace which makes proactive reaching out easy, the impossible was pulled off in less than two weeks. Highly recommended, we will be using them again in the near future."
