The University of Birmingham and Cultiv8 Solutions are looking for 10 professionals to take part in a ground-breaking pilot business project focused on reducing the lack of business opportunities and jobs for minority graduates.
Joel Graham-Blake, recently crowned winner of the recruitment and training category at this year’s BYPY Awards, has been asked to help the university create the pioneering programme.
He wants to identify 10 appropriate business mentors who can help BME graduates develop a strong level of business awareness, increasing their chance of long-term employment or starting their own business successfully.
Mentors must be an employee or a business owner working within the private, public, voluntary or creative sector and be willing to meet with a selected student once a month over three months. Prospective mentors will be interviewed in July and August.
