Hayden set up his own business called Unloc after leaving ALNS at the age of 16.
In 2013, at the age of just 17, Hayden was appointed as the Corporate Relationships and Accounts manager for a fast growing technology firm in London called Hubbub
In 2014, at the age of 18, Hayden was selected to represent his company and the United Kingdom at the One Young World global summit in Dublin, the worlds pre-eminent global forum for young leaders from 196 countries. He has since attended the global forums in Bangkok (Thailand), Ottawa (Canada) and Bogota, (Colombia). Hayden’s focus attending such summits is to promote the work of his organisation Unloc and it’s aim to empower young people to become changemakers, in addition to working for the advancement of the UN’s Global Goal no. 4 – a quality education for every young person.
In 2015, Hayden’s efforts to develop a more meaningful education system that empowers young people was recognised by the European Commission and he was invited to speak to hundreds of leaders and young people in Brussels
In 2017, at the age of 20, Hayden was selected to be one of 10 UK Jo Cox Memorial Scholars. These young leaders are challenged with promoting the late MPs ‘more in common’ mantra. Hayden travelled to Washington DC this summer to spend two weeks in the states with the US Embassy.
Hayden, now 21, is now focusing on his own business, Unloc, which provides programmes to 100 schools and colleges that helps young people make a difference through setting up a business or improving their community
