Recruitment entrepreneur Amy is matched with Wickersley School and Sports College….

Amy Stephenson, the Founder and Director of Human Recruitment in Rotherham has met colleagues from her partner school, Wickersley School and Sports College. Amy was the first local business person to complete the application process to become an Enterprise Adviser when the Enterprise Adviser Network programme started in earnest earlier this year. She said: “For me, the enterprise adviser programme it is about giving back. My parents had businesses so I was introduced to the world of work at a young age, and I’ve worked with many business across the region throughout my career. I am really passionate about enterprise and employability skills and what they can do for young people and their futures. I had it instilled in me that anything is possible with hard work and a bit of determination. I want young people to feel as empowered as I did when I first left education”

Amy met with Rachel Mullins, the Head of Careers at Wickersley, and Jess Stevenson, the Assistant Head. Rachel said: “We were looking for Enterprise Adviser who had broad knowledge about what’s out there, and what employers are looking for, and Amy’s background is ideal for that. We’re excited about how the programme will add value to our work.” Jess said: “Our students are keen to hear directly from business people and employers about the world of work. It helps inspire them, and informs their thinking. This process will help us create more opportunities for young people to have those encounters.”
