About Us

GB Shared is a network of countywide sharing platforms across the UK. They allow businesses to upload or ‘share’ their information, opportunities and resources with one another. Through working collaboratively, businesses keep opportunities local and work to create empathy economies, which inturn, impact our counties positively at local level, affecting things like local supply chains, reducing carbon footprint and unemployment levels.

All that young adults need to succeed in work and life is available, it's just not always visible. The Gen underpins all of our share sites, allowing our members the ability to actively flag and share content suitable for 16-24 year olds and 100% of our content is business led.

We work tirelessly to continuously engage and encourage businesses to share opportunities with young people, ensuring future generations can find what they need to grow, both as individuals and in business. From life skills to funding and job opportunities, through to placements, projects and internships and signposting to advice and support services, The Gen is the first national platform of it’s kind, aimed at centralising and equalising access to information, support and opportunties for young people across the UK, supporting future generations on their journey through life and work.
