About us: Green Skills for Jobs and Entrepreneurship (Green Skills) is a new 7-month project – led by UWE Bristol in partnership with NatWest and Black SouthWest Network (BSWN) – funded by the Government’s Community Renewal Fund.
Launching in January 2022, this project will address the skills shortages needed to deliver the West of England’s net zero ambitions by providing training, entrepreneurship, and employment opportunities for young people. The Project will encourage participation from Black British and British Asian heritage young people, in recognition of the employment gap that exists for black graduates and inspired by the #10000BlackInterns initiative.
Participants will be offered a Living Wage to attend 8 x 1-day skills sessions delivered at UWE Bristol’s University Enterprise Zone and BSWN’s Social Innovation Hub, co-delivered by the Project’s partners. Participants who complete the course will be able to access further opportunities including paid internships, start-up incubation support and training.
A major legacy of the Project will be a Green Skills for Jobs and Entrepreneurship Hub, hosted on an online platform and accessible to the wider West of England skills, innovation and enterprise ecosystem.
About you: We are looking for a dynamic and experienced business Partnerships Manager who will be responsible for promoting the project to local employers and securing internship placements for young people. You will co-ordinate and deliver an employer and ‘pitch’ events where young people can find out more about internship opportunities, further training, and incubation support.
We would welcome applicants from private and public sector organisations as a secondment opportunity.
Note: this is a fixed-term appointment to 31 July 2022 with an immediate start in January 2022.
