We are delighted to announce that our General manager at LBBC Beechwood, Andrew Quayle has taken on a new role as an enterprise adviser for the Leeds Enterprise Partnership (LEP). He is joining a network of senior business people from across the region, whose main aim is to inspire young people about their future career options.
The Enterprise Adviser Network has now recruited and trained over 110 business people who work on a voluntary basis as enterprise advisers. This group has been able to create 50 employer engagement strategies with schools and in doing so reach over 3500 students across the city region. (www.the-lep.com )
Andrew will be working closely with Pudsey Grangefield school.
On his new role Andrew says,
“I am delighted to be able to share my experiences of working in engineering and give young people the knowledge of the different job roles and different industries that are available as career options. It is really important that young people have the opportunity to get that feel for business and understand the range of opportunities in the workplace and in doing so hopefully we can inspire the next generation into an engineering career.”
Tawanda Mukombiwa who is an Enterprise Coordinator for Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (the LEP) says,
“It is crucial for young people to interact with professionals so they can make better informed choices and raise their aspirations. I am delighted to have Andrew as one of our Enterprise Advisors in Leeds and his experiences thus far will be really beneficial when it comes to supporting young people. From my first conversation with Andrew, I could sense that he has really bought into the network and I’m really looking forward to working with him through his journey as an Enterprise Advisor.”
