Give an Hour Campaign


Give an hour seeks to galvanise the business community (particularly SMEs) to deliver employer encounters in schools  and colleges. Once the business volunteer has completed the campaign registration form on The Careers & Enterprise Company website, based on their location, they will be matched with an Enterprise Coordinator. The Enterprise Coordinator will support them to deliver employer encounters in their local area either directly with schools and colleges or via local career activity providers.


KEY MESSAGES:
1. In an hour, you could make a difference to the choices a young person makes about their future. 
2. In an hour, you could change the course of a young person’s life just by sharing your story or helping them 
    understand more about the world of work.
3. It might feel too short to have a real impact, but we know from experience that an hour can create new             
    perspectives and inspire new ideas.

KEY BUSINESS BENEFITS:
• Give back to the local community
• Support young people
• Help to develop a future workforce
• Increase the potential talent pipeline in the local area
• Inspire young people about different sectors/industries

HERE ARE SOME OF THE WAYS BUSINESSES CAN GET INVOLVED:
• Share their career journey in an assembly or classroom
• Bring a subject to life by sharing their industry experience
• Take part in a mock interview or CV writing workshop
• Speed networking
• Volunteer through local careers activity providers
