    "Transitions was able to identify a suitable candidate immediately and pass those details on. Our request was quite specific and only a short-term contract, so it did not attract a lot of general interest. without the use of the service, we may have been short of candidates. We recruited the Transitions candidate."

What We Do

We provide employers with graduate and experienced professionals employment agency services, 3-6 month work experience placements and commissionable corporate workshops for staff volunteering and staff development. We provide candidates with specialist career guidance, enabling them to showcase transferable skills and experience to employers. Most candidates are engineers, business or international development professionals. Transitions London C.I.C. is a Community Interest Company, a type of social enterprise. We believe that responsible businesses can play a instrumental part in bringing skilled refugees into the UK labour market. This alongside publicly funded services, which have suffered profound cuts and which we are collaboratively lobbying to be restored.

As a Community Interest Company, regulated by Companies House, Transitions recycles any profits back into its services.
