Job Description

Spark! is a charity based in west London which aims to bridge the gap between school and the workplace. We are organising several virtual and in-school events in upcoming months and need volunteers from varied sectors and roles to support! This is a great opportunity to help the next generation in a difficult time: broadening their horizons and helping them see the opportunities out there. Every professional encounter they have will add up to help them transition into a successful career.

We are looking for volunteers with finance or start-up/entrepreneurial experience to help us run online insight days into careers into this area. We are working with Eton College's Year 11s and 12s on these (aged 15-17); we work with Eton to support our work financially with other schools and groups.

Dates:

19th May: Start-ups/entrepreneurship focus

9th June: Finance focus

What are we looking for?

- 1-2 guest speakers keen to share insights into their role, company, sector and career pathway as well as answer questions, for up to 30 minutes.

- a pair of volunteers on the same day to set and support students to complete a business challenge which is a commitment of roughly of 1.5 hrs split over two online sessions.

Volunteers do not need experience as Spark! will talk them through the required content and support volunteers.

If interested please contact the Work Experience Manager, Georgia Ford, on georgiaford@sparkcharity.org.uk.
