The Hull and East Yorkshire (HEY) Careers Hub has launched its Enterprise Adviser (EA) Recruitment Campaign.
The Careers Hub is calling on interested individuals from local businesses, employers and professionals in Hull and East Yorkshire to sign up as an EA.
EA volunteers will use their skills, experience and networks to support education leaders in schools, special schools and colleges to develop world class careers provision, helping every young person find their best next step.
This will provide invaluable employer perspective, putting opportunities with local businesses and employers at the heart of a young person’s education.
The Careers Hub enterprise coordinator will introduce volunteers to a suitable education institution around Hull and East Yorkshire.
This will be based on the needs of institutions across the Careers Hub and the expert support volunteers are able to provide.
EAs will also be attached to schools based on priorities identified by The Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC) and the Careers Hub.
Fiona Headridge, Careers Hub lead at HEY LEP, said: “We are delighted to be able launch our EA recruitment campaign.
“It is an incredibly valuable scheme, not only for our young people, but also for local businesses and employers.
“Supporting schools to prepare young people to be the future workforce of the region is hugely rewarding.”
EA Matt Johnson added: “Being an EA is incredibly rewarding! I work with the careers leader in my school to make improvements to provision and get to see the impact these changes make.
“I’ve witnessed first-hand how careers education, when delivered well, can make a difference to how young people see the world of work and the opportunities available to them.
“I would 100 per cent recommend the role to anyone thinking about getting involved.”
