Volunteer as a speaker
Do you want to motivate and inspire young people to realise their potential and to consider employment opportunities in the food, drink and retail industry? Can you offer your time to volunteer as a speaker at a motivation and information session in a state sixth form college?
If the answer is yes, we’d love to hear from you. You’ll join a growing UK network of over 300 volunteer speakers from industry who find their volunteering with us rewarding and enjoyable. And you’ll get as much out of the experience as the students.
Our sessions are two-hours long and take place in a state sixth form college with groups of 50 – 100+ students.
We usually book three volunteer speakers from industry for each session and where possible, we match our volunteers with colleges local to them. Our volunteer speakers come from all disciplines and levels in a company, and each has 10-15 minutes to tell their career journey from the age of 16 onwards. This is your chance to give young people starting out, the advice you wish you’d had when you were younger. Talks are followed by a Q & A session and time for informal networking.
