Setting-up on your own can be daunting but having a business mentor on hand to provide guidance and advice can make a huge difference.

That's why we're looking for business people willing to spend at least one hour every fortnight for up to 34 weeks supporting an individual who is new to self-employment.

This is a rewarding and fulfilling volunteer role where mentors can contribute directly to the success of an individual as they prepare to start trading and beyond.

Mentors will work with the individual as they put together their business plan and go on to support them during their first six months of trading.

We will provide mentors with lots of useful resources, including access to free rooms at the Chamber to meet their mentee during working hours.

There will be an initial induction session and then further opportunities to meet other mentors on the programme to share best practice and swap success stories.
