Tapping into the talent of Birmingham’s university population


Social Enterprise Mentor will be running a very special networking event this month aimed at bringing students and graduates from Birmingham’s university population together with social enterprises and entrepreneurs. The event will provide an opportunity for the social enterprise sector to tap into the talent of local students and graduates.

Birmingham has a student population in excess of 65,000 studying at degree level or higher in subject areas, such as, business, computing, marketing, media, arts, health. As part of their studies many students  will be looking for opportunities to gain work experience, placements opportunities, internships and project work, but there are also a significant number  wishing to set up their own business. (you can read more about local graduate entrepreneurship in a previous BSSEC blog article here)

If you are looking for talented people to help grow your social enterprise, or a funder looking to support young people’s ideas or you just want to find out more about how your business could work with the university sector then this event is for you!

This special free networking event takes place on the 19th May 2011 9.45-11.45 for more information and to register for the event please visit Social Enterprise Mentor (limited availability)

    Can you tell me how you will be advertising this opportunity to students and graduates. I work for The University of Birmingham and would like to advertise this opportunity to our students and graduates but was unsure if you are already doing this.

      Thanks for your comment, Sue — I’ll forward it to Mark Ellerby who’s organising this so as to be sure that you are both in touch.
