The IoD is very pleased to be working with The Careers and Enterprise Company to encourage experienced directors to volunteer as an Enterprise Advisor.
By volunteering as an Enterprise Adviser (EA) and partnering with a secondary school or college, you will have the opportunity to support them in the development and implementation of their careers strategy, ensuring all students are prepared and inspired for the fast-changing world of work.
Working with the Careers Leader and wider senior leaders of the school or college, EAs help to build connections between employers and education to improve young people’s career prospects. EAs provide valuable employer perspective to the Careers Leaders, as well as supporting the integration of careers in the school or college’s wider curriculum, putting opportunities with local employers at the heart of a young person’s education.
Your individual experience matters, you can become part of the Enterprise Adviser Network, join your colleagues and improve your personal and professional development. Now, more than ever, young people need our support. Click here to find out more.
