Exciting Management Opportunity for all Members
Have you ever thought about running or working in a small business?
Step Ahead is planning on starting a small social enterprise and we are looking for volunteer members who would like to be involved. We are not looking for specific skills at this point, more a desire to be involved. The aim of the social enterprise to is provide members with an opportunity to upskill into the many different roles a business needs to run smoothly. This first group of volunteers will become the management team who will make the decisions about how the social enterprise will be run, including a business plan, resources needed and the various requirements of how to get underway. It’s an exciting opportunity to take part in building a business from the very ground up.
Of course, if you already have some experience in any of these areas you will also be most welcome. We will be looking for people who would like to learn about marketing, computer use, budgeting, accounting, recruitment and how to run a business – training will be provided if you have no experience.
At this stage the social enterprise we are planning will be for a sewing and clothing repairs workshop that would also be open to the local community. This however is open to change depending on what the members want.
If you would like to know more about this come along to our no obligation information session at Stanmore Road on Thursday 5th December at 2pm. Any questions please come and see Julie.
