Meet the team

Uptree started life back in 2015 when our CEO Tamsin founded the organisation whilst working part-time as a supply teacher.

Fast forward to now, and we’re a diverse team of around 20 people based across the UK, EEA and Canada. We’ve still got a hub in London and Edinburgh, but now we live, work (and hire) from all over the EEA. A lot has changed since 2015 but what hasn’t changed is our commitment to making sure that no young person is left behind on their journey to employment. We live by our mission. That means we’re collaborative and values led, and always put young people at the heart of our decisions. To learn more about our approach to working with young people, check out our blog.
