Young Workers’ Network

Welcome to Prospect’s Young Workers’ Network. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, young people were already facing more precarious employment and lower pay than previous generations.

Since the pandemic struck, young workers have been some of the hardest hit by the ensuing cost of living crisis.

Now is a critical time in conversations about what we want the future world of work to look like, and it is essential that young workers are at the forefront of that conversation.

At Prospect, we’re working to ensure this happens. We have a growing young membership, currently 30,000 strong and we want you to be part of it. With our young members and activists, we’re fighting to protect jobs and for a better working life for young people. Together, we can make change happen.

If you join Prospect, we will support and help you secure the changes you need to see at work, amplifying your voice.

We’re here to support you in every aspect of your career – from getting on the career ladder, moving into management, and all the twists and turns that happen in between. It’s not just work either – you’ll get exclusive access to lifestyle benefits, financial advice and support with things like your pension, making a Will and getting on the housing ladder.

There has never been a better time to join a trade union and, at Prospect, we’re ready to work with you to achieve the future you deserve.
