OUT OF LONDON
Lowering the ladder to international politics
WHO WE ARE
We believe that where you're from shouldn't determine where you can go in your career.
We want to lower the ladder to international politics and create more opportunities for working class people from outside London to build essential contacts and gain insight into the field.
We do this by connecting policy and development leaders with people who have the talent and drive, but not the social or financial capital to break into London.
BECOME A MENTEE
If you’re from the UK but outside of London, identify as working class and want to start a career in international politics, then we’re here to help. Sign up to Out of London to be matched with a senior professional in the field and get access to free mentoring and career support.
BECOME A MENTOR
Being a mentor is a rewarding way to support the next generation of world changers and global thinkers. We work with senior professionals across the fields of international relations, development and politics. Current mentors come from organisations including the World Bank, FCDO and the House of Commons.
PARTNER WITH US
Whether you are a media company, a think tank, an NGO or a global business, we are always looking for new partners that share our mission of making international politics more diverse and inclusive. Get in touch to see how you can partner with us.
Since starting with my Out of London mentor, I've not only developed a concise career plan for the next 5 to 10 years, but the confidence and knowledge to back it up. I'd never imagined I'd feel so prepared and informed about the foreign policy sector and particularly, practical humanitarian aid.
