North Cheshire Young Professionals Network launches!

The North Cheshire Young Professionals Network is a programme to provide development and network opportunitites to support young people aged 16-24 from Macclesfield, Poynton, Wilmslow and Knutsford who are in the early stages of their career, including those undertaking apprenticeships. The programme is run jointly by the Macclesfield Pledge and North Cheshire Chamber of Commerce, both of whom are keen to develop the local young leaders of the future.

Young professionals will benefit from an annual programme of four 90 minute network sessions between April 2022 and January 2023. These will provide opportunitites for young people to establish their own peer contacts and support networks with colleagues at a similar early stage of their career within the local area, and to develop their professional skills. Each session will have a separate theme to help the young people to develop their skills in networking, communication and presentation, whilst also providing opportuntities for them to get to know each other and develop relationships. All attendees will receive a Certificate of Attendance for their development portfolio.

This is a great opportunity for local employers to invest and support their young professionals and to help attract future talent with a proven peer network. Those interested in joining the programme or wanting to find out more should contact Lizzie Wood elizabeth@northcheshirechamber.co.uk or join our Zoom session on Wednesday 23 March to learn more and have your questions answered.
