What are Enterprise Advisers?
Professional Services Week was just the beginning of a larger, much needed move to help improve social mobility and strengthen the BPS sector for the future. 2013’s Future Commission emphasised the need for Birmingham to grow as a knowledge hub, therefore we believe there is an impetus for businesses to be capitalising on the diverse mix of raw potential in our communities. With too many gifted students not finding a clear path into a career in the city we’re looking to bridge that gap between employers and schools by working with The Careers and Enterprise Company to recruit Enterprise Advisers. Enterprise Advisers are to be vital connections between school and business communities who can volunteer 4 to 8 hours a month to help a local school plan their careers strategy.
