Could you mentor a business start-up?

If you’re experienced in business and willing to share your knowledge to inspire, guide and motivate others on their journey to self-employment then volunteering with PeoplePlus could be for you. You will not only be transforming people’s lives but you’ll be actively contributing to the reduction of unemployment in Britain.

Mentoring is flexible from the comfort of your home, face to face or over Skype and you are free to choose how much time you can dedicate to your mentee each month – every hour counts!

Please get in touch at 0161 212 7429 or email to find out more and sign up to our mentoring programme.

Martine Grainger, Birmingham, Our Business Advisor, Naz Hassain, was very supportive. To be honest, he made the process of starting up quite easy. What I found particularly helpful was that whenever we got stuck with anything, we always knew that we could call Naz and he’d know what to do. When you are going into something new, it’s important to have someone like that on your side.
