The event will explain the work of the Bucks Skills Hub, and the benefits for you as an employer, as well as for the wider community, of helping young people achieve their potential.

Time commitment is decided by you, and can be as little as one hour a year to give a careers insight talk, through to acting as a consultant to a school through the role of Enterprise Adviser.

Why get involved?

One in three Bucks employers have stated that 17-18 year olds recruited to first time jobs from school are “poorly” or “very poorly” prepared for work. You can help change this. It’s an opportunity to:

  • Investigate local potential recruits
  • Shape employability skills and develop tomorrow’s workforce
  • Pass on enthusiasm for your sector
  • Promote your business

But most of all, perhaps, it’s a chance to give something back.
