CEO and Founder, James Uffindell


"We started Bright Network to build the workforce of tomorrow, by using technology and data to fix the problem that talent is everywhere but opportunity is not. 

10 years later, we’ve impacted the lives of one million brilliant, diverse members, connecting them with the advice, insights and opportunities to help them reach their potential. 

To these one million members, thank you for being part of the journey. It's been inspiring to see you matched with leading employers and go on to succeed in careers that you might not have otherwise considered.  

To our 300+ world leading employer partners – thank you for all the support on our mission. 

And one million is just a start.  

There’s still so much more to do when it comes to driving social mobility, levelling the playing field for bright students and graduate and closing critical skills gap so that leading organisations can truly thrive. We will continue on our mission and keep innovating to support our members and employer partners as we build a diverse, skilful and talented workforce of tomorrow."
