Become an
employer partner

Our employer partners are vital to the success of our programmes.

Wherever we work we find community-minded employer partners who want to make an impact on their own doorsteps, and who become vital parts of the village that we create to support our young people. From providing work placements to fabulous role models to sponsorship, the opportunities that our employer partners offer change lives.

The benefits of being an employee partner

  • Active demonstration of your commitment to the community as well as an inclusive and diverse workplace.
  • Mentoring our young people provides inexperienced team members with valuable mentoring skills and experiences.
  • An understanding of the challenges faced by our young people informs company recruitment and apprentice schemes.
  • A recruitment stream – many employer partners want to offer opportunity to young people but otherwise don’t have the opportunity to meet and assess them in a work context.
  • Movement towards achieving the UN Social Development Goals – WeMindTheGap answers nine of the 17 UN SDGs.
  • Availability of any WeMindTheGap young people and team as volunteers to support your own company and charity activity.
  • A source of great pride for your team.
