BECOME AN ENTERPRISE ADVISER
Lancashire Careers Hub success is fundamentally reliant on the amazing support of all our Enterprise Advisers who all generously volunteer their expertise, skills and knowledge to help schools and colleges develop and deliver a world class careers programme.
Lancashire’s Enterprise Advisers are individuals who represent our wide and diverse economy and range from Chief Executives, senior leaders, managers, business owners and consultants from both private and public sector who collectively share a passion to ensure all our young people are provided with and have the opportunity to be the best they can be.
The future prosperity of Lancashire relies totally on our future workforce, so not only is an Enterprise Adviser making a significant immediate impact on young people, but they are also helping secure the future of our region.
The role of an Enterprise Adviser is to support and work with an individual school and their senior leadership teams in shaping the schools’ career strategy, they are there to provide an external voice and to be the schools’ critical and supportive adviser.
An Enterprise Adviser is also able to use their own network and contacts to support a school’s career activities, or some even chose to be directly involved in supporting career activities.
Our commitment is to ensure an Enterprise Adviser is fully supported by one of our team, and this includes a full induction, regular Enterprise Adviser networking meetings and an opportunity to represent the Enterprise Adviser network at regional and national level to help influence and shape Government strategy.
In Lancashire we also have the Skills Pledge which provides you with one place to find out more about employer facing skills and training initiatives. You only need to sign up and then a Pledge Partner who is an expert, will get in touch with you to help you to Pledge. Pledging will give your business recognition for the things it does to upskill, recruit and inspire the people of Lancashire.
