Spear Programme

Corporate sponsorship

Inspire the future

Thousands of unemployed young people are eager to overcome whatever obstacles they are facing and get into work. Your skills, influence, experience and financial support can help them get there.

As a Corporate Partner, your support will:

  1. Help unemployed young people enter sustainable employment
  2. Inspire your staff to volunteer their professional skills
  3. Make a positive impact on your strategic CSR objectives
  4. Play an influential role in reducing unemployment in your local community

Three ways to get involved

1. Sponsor a cohort

Sponsor a cohort of 12-15 young people on the Spear Programme. Experience the lasting influence your support can have.

2. Volunteering opportunities

Encourage your staff to volunteer their professional skills, helping Spear programme candidates with:

  • Mock interviews
  • Skills-based workshops
  • Presentation feedback
  • Hosting a company visit

3. Employ young people

Offer entry-level roles to our diverse, motivated Spear candidates. Help them take that first crucial step towards long-term employment.

We're very glad to have had the opportunity to have Daniel intern with us and will look forward to continued partnership with Spear.

Spear graduates have brought a huge amount to our business – 10% of our workforce are now Spear graduates. They’re quick learners, they’re keen and they inspire the rest of our staff by their enthusiasm. I’d really encourage any business to consider hiring Spear graduates.

John Spiers, CEO, EQ Investors

Just sending you a quick note to thank you (the Spear team and the trainees) for such a wonderful evening yesterday. It was really inspiring (and equally empowering) to see the incredible growth of the young people. The extent to which their maturity and confidence has developed since we saw them at the company visit, just a few weeks ago, is remarkable!

Spear's goal for its young people is not only to get them into work, but also to ensure that they sustain and progress in employment to become financially independent adults. It is one of the very few programmes in the country that has an innovative approach to coach young people for one full year to secure a job and help them progress their career.
