Employer Engagement

Engage with a new source of talent and ideas for your workplace

Make an impact on the life of a young person and their family

Play a part in building a fairer society

Amongst the young people on Empowering Enterprise there is a huge pool of talent, insight and potential that could benefit your organisation. If you are an employer or community organisation and would like to offer a young person a valuable opportunity to demonstrate and develop their skills, confidence and experience, get in touch with us. This would be unpaid and you can offer as much or as little time as you would like. Perhaps you could help with:

  • Workplace visit and tour
  • Taster day or shadow shift
  • Work experience placement
  • Mock interview
  • Sector-specific mentoring

Take a look at our case study with The University of Exeter to see how hosting a young person on Empowering Enterprise provides employers and organisations with valuable opportunities to develop their own insight and practices. 

Devon Communities Together is a support partner on Empowering Enterprise, working to engage employers, community organisations and businesses to offer a range of opportunities to these young people to develop their confidence, skills and experience.
