EBP South’s established career events are a cost-effective way for your organisation to develop long-term recruitment plans and invest in young people. Through large-scale events, your organisation will be supporting 100’s of students from a diverse range of schools, helping to have a positive impact on social mobility, decrease the gender gap and create awareness about the job roles young people can aspire to.
Inspire 100’s of young people into your industry by demonstrating the skills required through an interactive activity that showcases your businesses or industry.
Businesses are required to create a short 5 minute activity that young people can take part-in individually or in groups or it can be piece of equipment you use in your job that young people can ‘explore’ e.g. bus company – buses or theatre ‘lighting’ etc. The activity must to be related to the organisation or industry.
Young people will then freely explore the the businesses activities. The purpose is to engage them in a fun way that then enables them to ask you questions about job roles, industry etc and through success of completing the activity they will see that maybe if they can do that, they could do a job in your industry.
Help create a spark and inspire the next generation.
The Primary Schools’ STEM fair and Secondary STEM fair events give your business an opportunity to develop the pipeline from a young age.
