Employers and Volunteers

Bringing employers, schools and colleges together to transform careers education.

Your support and collaboration is key to the work of Dorset Careers Hub and the success of our young people.  

We need local businesses, innovators and industry experts to work with us to help achieve the goals of the Government’s careers strategy, delivered by us in partnership with The Careers & Enterprise Company.  

We work hand in hand with our schools & colleges to ensure that they implement effective and proactive careers guidance in line with The Gatsby Benchmarks. A key part of this is giving all 11-19-year olds the opportunity to learn from employers about work and the skills needed, via workplace encounters and work experience. 

The benefits to a company and our young people, tomorrow’s workforce, are proven and significant. Whilst helping young people to explore their options, learn about and succeed in the world of work, you are also raising awareness of your industry and company, attracting future talent to meet your long-term recruitment goals. 

We work on a range of initiatives and events throughout the year and these are just some of the ways you can get involved, with varying degrees of time commitment. Visit our Get involved page to offer your support.
