if_jee-66_2180674Created with Sketch. Employability

Leicestershire Cares pairs volunteers from our business members with schools and colleges across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to deliver high quality, meaningful employability activities. These help improve students’ academic attainment, life chances, social mobility and the potential for future wage earnings, while providing businesses with valuable opportunities to develop their talent pipeline and give back to the community.

Activities we run include inspirational talks, workplace visits and tours, CV workshops, Q&A panels, industry showcase events and employability Team Challenges. We also work closely with schools and colleges to find employee volunteers for their in-house employability activities and campaigns.

We're looking for business volunteers for the following employability events:
