How it works

Surrey Careers Hub – which sits within Surrey County Council and part-funded by the national Careers & Enterprise Company – is one of 47 Careers Hubs across England.

Surrey Careers Hub works with schools, colleges, employers, training providers, and partners to deliver consistent, high-quality careers programmes aligned with the Gatsby Benchmarks.

The Surrey Careers Hub works to:

  • improve careers education
  • ensure a consistent and high-quality careers programme for all young people
  • enable schools and colleges to access careers training and support
  • make it easier for schools and colleges to prepare young people for their best next steps

Key to the work of the Surrey Careers Hub is providing insights into the world of work and employer opportunities. These ensure young people feel confident entering the workplace equipped with skills for the 21st century.

How you can get involved

Employers and volunteers are crucial to the Careers Hub.

Giving students much needed and valuable exposure to diverse employers and workplaces allows them to meet role models and be inspired about future pathways, jobs, and opportunities.

Working with the education sector is a way for businesses to connect with future talent, play an active role in increasing diversity and help shape the skills of tomorrow’s workforce. Plus, it can also support future recruitment to jobs and apprentices in Surrey.

We offer several ways to get involved – from sharing your personal journey and career insights directly with young people to offering work placements and supporting school leaders in shaping their careers programmes.

Industry Champions

Use your skills to contribute to local talent development, elevate your brand in the community, establish connections for your future workforce, and create a positive workplace culture.

Industry Champions deliver a range of activities in schools, such as mock interviews, talks, work experience and attend employer / student networking days.

Suitable for anyone working in any sector with a few hours to spare.
