The question ‘if not this, then what?’ plagues even the bravest and most ambitious of career-changers. We get it (seriously). And we share your belief that life is too short – and too long! – to do work that doesn’t matter to you.


Most job boards are bleak, soulless places where dreams go to die. We built ours to be everything they’re not. Every week, we share opportunities at exciting, alternative, purpose-driven companies to help you find work that makes you feel alive.


If you fancy jacking in the 9-5 altogether to build your own thing, it can be pretty daunting. We’ve helped hundreds of people become their own boss, and avoid wasting time, money and energy on the wrong things.

Old Street Station, London.

A place to work, hatch plans, share skills, connect, get inspired and wake yourself up from the daily grind.

Waking up the working world one coffee at a time.

“The most important thing I learned with Escape The City is that nothing will change unless you make the change. It is so important to surround yourself with like-minded people for encouragement at down-times.”

“Escape helped me to learn that I’m not strange or stupid for quitting my corporate job to go in search of a more meaningful career. There’s loads of amazing people out there who are doing the same thing, with ideas and passion, all who helped to inspire me.”
