Mansfield & Ashfield 2020 together we mean business

Career Champion Hall of Fame

What is a Career Champion?

2020 and the Evolve Trust has been working with local businesses for a number of years to give young people the opportunity to improve their skills and raise aspirations. Together they created the ‘Career Champions’.

By becoming a Career Champion a business will be taking a pledge to commit to undertaking at least one activity each academic year which will support the employability skills of students within Mansfield and Ashfield.

Here are our Career Champions:

Our Career Champions have delivered at least one of the activities outlined below:


Give students interested in your industry area targeted support on how to get started in their chosen career.

Work Experience

Give students real on the job experience with a placement.


We run lots of events to support and encourage employability skills. You could sponsor a student to attend a Mansfield 2020 breakfast meeting, or sponsor one of our events such as the Junior Enterprise Event.

Top Tips

Share your Top Tips on the 2020 website to give students key information about the world of work.

Master Classes and Motivational Talks

Share your expertise with a group of students, either by sharing your career journey in a Master Class, or by providing a motivational talk.

Additional Support: If you have any ideas of ways you could support our students, and give local young people a valuable insight into the world of work, please contact us, we’d love to hear from you.
