Careers at Make Shift

Make Shift is a pioneering platform that seeks to drive progress through local enterprises.

We believe that neighbourhoods thrive when they have successful local enterprises that reflect their diversity, character and spirit. All our projects focus on creating space to champion individuality, enabling their talent, ambition and businesses to progress and flourish.

We reflect the individuality of the neighbourhoods, making sure that the space is as affordable as possible, offer as much support as we can, and we actively connect our members with neighbouring enterprises and with each other.

When enterprises thrive, society thrives too - for the benefit of the local neighbourhood. We believe that the collective power of individuality is at the heart of all great progress.

Our Mission & Vision
