Speak to young people about your job - inspire them with great career ideas! Monday 16 June 2008 PDF Print Growing Ambitions needs you . . . whatever your job, whatever your business, whatever work you do. Because young people want to hear from people who are doing the jobs they are interested in. "I set up Growing Ambitions because my son didn't have the career advice I thought he needed. He told me that he wanted to be able to talk to someone in the job about what they did. He wanted some real information before he made a career choice. And he was right." said Sally Davis, Managing Director, Growing Ambitions. Wherever you are in the UK there are young people in schools, colleges and universities keen to hear learn from you about the work you do or the business you own. And it doesn't require a total commitment - just one half-hour session in a school/college close to you or your business - talking about your education, training and day job. You can opt to speak near your home or workplace, or both. Growing Ambitions is a not-for-profit, online initiative putting careers advisers UK-wide in touch with volunteer workplace speakers they need. People from all walks of life, all age groups and doing a variety of jobs can volunteer because it is those people who make up our workforce and business community. (This is great public relations for yourself and your business. Register for free as a Partner on the website, and let others see that you are supporting the initiative.) To take part all you need to do is go to Growing Ambitions click 'Offer to Speak' and complete the registration screen - this is a free service to speakers. To get a speaking time and date that fits with your working schedule simply tick the 'flexible' Speaking Slot option, then a Careers Adviser will contact you and agree a time to suit.
