Why the Enterprise Adviser Network is important?
Did you know that 66% of businesses want to recruit people with work experience, yet only
38% offer it? Or that a huge 82% of teachers think that better careers and business
guidance is needed in schools?
LEAN is looking for senior business employees who are willing to volunteer a small amount
of their time to become an Enterprise Adviser (EA).
As an EA, you will work with a school or college’s Careers Leader to create links with
business so that students have access to relevant and impactful careers advice. You’ll help
the school to develop a careers support plan to help students to make informed decisions
about their future.
Reed in Partnership’s team of Enterprise Coordinators will provide you with specialist
training and offer you continued support in your role.
