Enterprise Advisers

27 Mar 2018

The Enterprise Adviser Network, links employers with schools and colleges to support young people in making choices about their future career. 

Business volunteers, known as Enterprise Advisers, work closely with the senior leadership team of a local school or college to develop a strategy and careers plan that puts opportunities with local employers at the heart of a young person’s education. Enterprise Advisers use their knowledge and their local business links to enable students to get to know the world of work and the job opportunities that are available.

Across Devon and Somerset, we are delighted that a number of high profile companies are already working with us at the Careers and Enterprise Company and CSW. We are keen to encourage more companies to participate in the Enterprise Adviser Network as it is a hugely worthwhile programme for schools, colleges, businesses and Enterprise Advisers. 

Being an Enterprise Adviser can be incredibly rewarding. It is a great opportunity to:

  • Share your insights about job opportunities and the key skills that local and national businesses need.
  • Build your company’s reputation.
  • Develop your own interpersonal and strategy skills.
  • Deepen your connection to the local community.
  • Use your experience and network to inspire young people and directly influence the careers and enterprise support they receive.
  • Become part of a national network that aims to raise the aspirations of young people and prepare them for the world of work.

We are currently looking for Enterprise Advisers across East Devon, South Hams, Plymouth, Torbay and Somerset. If this role is of interest and you would like to discuss it further, please do not hesitate to contact us as we would be delighted to explore how we can work together in more detail.
