Enterprise Advisers

Volunteer to be an Enterprise Adviser

We are looking for volunteers of exceptional calibre from the world of work (employed or self-employed) to help young people realise their potential by using opportunities that enterprise can offer through the new Enterprise Adviser network in the Black Country.

The role

Enterprise Advisers would advise head teachers and teachers in secondary schools on the ways employers can engage with the school, drawing on advice from key local partners, including those that offer careers advice.

Advisers are drawn from all sectors of the economy and are not only restricted to entrepreneurs.

You will work closely with the Senior Leadership Team in local schools and colleges for a minimum of 1 day per month for an academic year; to support them in developing their careers and enterprise strategies and employer engagement plans, drawing on your own local business networks.

Becoming an Enterprise Adviser is a unique opportunity to support a school or college in improving opportunities for young people, and is also a chance to join a national network of like-minded peers.
