Enterprise Support Volunteer

  • VO74965


Description

Launch It Dundee was set up last year to provide affordable business premises and tailored support for local young entrepreneurs. We are part of the Launch It Trust, a group of charities all working towards the same goals. We work primarily with 18-30 year olds who are unemployed, under-employed or otherwise facing barriers to conventional employment, and provide them with access to subsidised office space and the business support they need to start and grow their own businesses.

We are looking for a volunteer who has experience of enterprise and business start up. They will support our enterprise manager at our centre and will work directly with our young people. The role will include representing the charity with local organisations, recruiting and supporting our young entrepreneurs and offering enterprise training support. The role will be extremely varied due to the very small team and start up nature of the centre.
