Meet our Youth Advisory Panel

We use a human-centred design approach to make sure that Sort meets the needs of our users. This is why we put together a Youth Advisory Panel. Our YAP members are a diverse group of young people from across the UK. Everything we do is informed by them, and we’re always working to improve their experience.

"Sort is the ultimate career discovery platform! I have been exposed to job titles and career paths I hadn’t heard of and broadened my prospects. Fun and simple to navigate - an enjoyable experience. I had the opportunity to contribute to a project aimed at supporting young people to sort their future and had great conversations with the team throughout."
"Sort literally allows you to see what opportunities are out there and lets your organise them so that you can apply and do your best. The panel gives you a good insight on the amount of thinking and work that goes behind a digital product and that is fascinating, it lets you be a part of something great."
"I think that Sort is an amazing platform, and it has been really helpful and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. My experience with the panel has been great and I felt I’ve really made a difference. I’d recommend other people join because you really do feel like what you say matters."
"Sort is really beneficial when looking for careers and qualifications. I would most definitely recommend to a friend or family member. The panel has been extremely insightful, and i’ve gained experience giving constructive criticism to improve a service. I’ve throughly enjoyed my time thus far as it has been not only rewarding but a unique experience."
"I would recommend sort to others as it is a platform that allows you to curate your own future. It is an organised site that allows you to discover opportunities that suit your interests.I would recommend applying to become a youth advisory panel as it has enabled me to gain professional skills. It has allowed me to feel involved within a team and project, which feels rewarding."
"Sort is great and easy to navigate. It has lots of interesting features and provides clarity for young people applying to their first jobs. The panel has been interesting and insightful. Good with flexibility around your schedule and it's nice to feel that your opinion is vital and important for Sort."
"It opened my eyes to how much work goes into creating a website focused towards helping people & providing them with information. It helped me feel more confident and excited to share my opinion/ideas, and after every task's conversations, I felt more and more inspired to be creative. I would definitely recommend young people to apply, as it is such an amazing opportunity for a unique experience to step out of your comfort zone and learn! I believe Sort is a website everybody should know about. Sort can be a fantastic help for anyone, as it gives the opportunity to explore all the different careers out there, it shares education/job opportunities, and it keeps you up-to-date with short articles.. and much more!"
"Sort seem like a genuine group of people trying to help us sort our future by providing us with Sort and I would definitely recommend it to others. I found the YAP experience interesting, informative and I would look into doing something like this again. I would definitely recommend to others who have the time to be on the advisory panel"
"I think Sort is a brilliant website that is tailored exactly to the viewers needs. It is a quick and convenient resource for finding the perfect career pathway for you. I would recommend Sort to people because it has helped me, and I'm sure it can help many others."
"I think its a really fantastic site with a huge amount of potential to be of aid to many users due to its simple and accessible features. i think the ease with which you can access information about employers and job types gives it an edge over many other websites with the same goal due to the quick startup process"
"Sort genuinely makes me excited! I will recommend it to friends who are struggling choosing paths and do not know where to begin their search of comparison. This will be a very helpful tool for many!"
"It's very easy to find the right career path based on things you genuinely like doing and are interested in. I will definitely be using Sort after I come out of university and recommend it to anyone stuck on what to pick as their career path."
"By witnessing both the work behind the scenes and the result the public gets to experience, I recommend Sort as it genuinely delivers the result it promises: ensuring access for everyone to the best opportunities, with an emphasis on their potential! ... [Sort has] enabled me to develop transferable skills in a not-your-traditional context. The nature of the work will not only allow you to collaborate with different personalities and enrich your knowledge, but will make your CV stand out from the crowd!"
"Sort gives you the ability to gain a more specific idea to what career path you may be interested in.
It’s the best platform I have seen attempt this so far. I would recommend it to others."
"I think the USP of Sort is the focus they have on what you are like as a person; the ways you work, the areas/sectors you might be interested in (nice and broad categories which is helpful if you don't really have a specific career in mind!). It's not, at least in my view, so wholly focused on getting straight on the career ladder, but just giving you the opportunity to start investigating options. I'd definitely recommend Sort to others!"
"I have enjoyed being part of the panel and would recommend it to others. I think that Sort is a helpful place for young people."
