Young Enterprise Business Volunteer
The Business Volunteer role is to mentor a group of young people who are setting up and running their own student company during the academic year. Students elect a Board of Directors, sell shares, open a business bank account, decide on a product or service, sell at trade fairs and enter a competition. With full training and support your role would be to guide the students and provide your expertise and advice. No specific experience needed, just the enthusiasm to motivate the young people. Bi-weekly meetings for an hour usually in a school setting.
No specific skills or experience are needed however the ability to lead and motivate young people is very important. A knowledge of how businesses run and become successful is also useful.
- An opportunity to network with other professional people and Business Volunteers.
- The chance to develop your own skills whilst helping the young people to develop theirs.
- We provide full training plus an enhanced DBS background check.
This opportunity is available at a few locations in the county and Business Volunteers make their own travel arrangements. Parking is often available at schools but should be arranged before the visit.
