Job Role : Elected Councillor for East Cambridgeshire District Council

Sector : Public sector

With a background in education, training  and business, I am convinced that the collaboration of both is vital to support our careers programmes in school.

A culture of careers advice and guidance in school will enable our young people to make really informed choices when it comes to pathways and opportunities.  Working with senior management, careers advisers and often the students has been a joy and a privilege.

Role : Marketing & Development Director

Company : Grovemere Property Ltd

Sector: Commercial Real Estate Matched

School: Witchford Village College

I am a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) with over 20 years’ experience in investment, development and management of commercial real estate. I have been a mentor to students for many years now and hope to inspire students to reach their full potential. Highlighting to students that stepping outside your comfort zone can lead to unexpected opportunities and confirming that the business world is not a scary place.

We recently hosted our first face to face post 16 options evening with parents and students with FE colleges attending and businesses to discuss the apprenticeship options. I am passionate about helping business owners achieve the business growth goals through property and volunteer as an Enterprise Adviser to ensure we retain strong local talent to fill local jobs.

Name : Sharon Livermore

Role : Director

Company : Kameo Recruitment Ltd

Sector: Recruitment

Matched School: Cottenham Village College & Long Road Sixth Form

I have volunteered for Form the Future for five years and when the position of EA came up, I instantly knew I wanted to take on the challenge. Being an EA means that I get to work closely with the school/college and build a long-term relationship with them.

I have used my network to find attendees to speak at career’s days, presented to GCSE Business Studies students, offered general careers and employment advice, and supported with improving the school’s career website page. I have worked in recruitment for ten years and set up my own business in 2018, where I have gained many valuable skills, which help in the position of EA.

I am extremely passionate about helping others, so the position of EA is fantastic, as I get the opportunity to use my skills and knowledge whilst helping the younger generation.
