Essex Enterprise Adviser Network
The Essex Enterprise Adviser Network is looking for professionals to become Enterprise Advisers.
Enterprise Advisers should be passionate about helping young people to develop their future career aspirations. The network is a national programme and has been launched to inspire and prepare secondary school students for the world of work.
In Essex alone, 50 advisers have been linked to Essex schools since the start of the programme in 2016. Advisers are from industries including:
- advanced manufacturing and engineering
- digital & creative and logistics
- financial and related services
As an Enterprise Adviser, you'll agree with your linked school about how to progress your working relationship. For example, you may agree to:
- influence the careers curriculum
- ensure young people understand the link between their studies and the world of work
- provide young people with the opportunity to meet and inspire students to understand more about your sector
- support the development of students employability skills
As an Enterprise Adviser you'll see great benefits for your company. You will be part of a national network and attend local business networking events with other professionals working to inspire young people.
If you'd like to help but can't become an Enterprise Adviser, you could become an Industry Champion, which helps schools on an ad-hoc basis when they need help with interview days, presentations or careers events.
