CEO & Founder



WYGU (When You Grow Up) is a new social careers guidance, development and mentoring platform that helps you to find your perfect career. Entrepreneur Alun Baker, founder and Chief Executive Officer, and his team have developed a free online space that offers mentoring, peer guidance and personal career-matching, as well as access to a wealth of industry and user-generated content in a unique information resource, the WYGUpedia.

Launched after two years’ development, WYGU is now open to all and helps you to find a career that brings together your interests and skills. WYGU does this by allowing you to take responsibility for the way your career is developed, using a combination of facts and experience-based information, to help make the accidental career a thing of the past.
