Request to Business owners/managers
Young Enterprise is currently recruiting for Business Advisers and Board Members in Sutton and Merton for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 programmes.
To empower young people
Young Enterprise is the UK’s leading charity that empowers young people to harness their personal and business skills. We make business relevant to the daily lives of young people. Our Company Programme sparks energy and enthusiasm, helping them to discover their individual talents and achieve what they thought was impossible.
The YE Process
Delivered in year 12, the students form a company, making all the decisions from raising initial capital to designing their product or service, selling direct to customers and ultimately winding up the company and paying their taxes.
Role of the Advisor
All this takes place with the support of a volunteer Business Adviser, who gives practical support to the students. This is a hands-on role and requires regular attendance at the company meetings which are currently held at the end of the school day once a week. The programme starts in September with the area finals being held in April.
Role of the Board member
The local Young Enterprise Board comprises local business people who work with YE staff to deliver the company programme in Sutton and Merton. Meetings are held once a month in Sutton, with some additional time commitment between meetings.
Business owners/managers needed
We are currently recruiting for both Business Advisers and Board members in Sutton and Merton. If you are interested and would like to hear more about us please email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of us will get in touch. Thank you in advance for your support.
