Cornerstone Employers work closely with the Kent and Medway Careers Hub. They act as ambassadors, linking their business contacts with clusters of secondary schools and colleges, influencing careers strategy and ensuring that young people can learn from employers. There are currently 11 Cornerstone Employers across Kent and Medway:
- BAE Systems
- East Kent College Group
- Ebbsfleet Development Corporation
- Flannery Plant Hire
- Grain LNG (National Grid)
- Kent County Council
- Lower Thames Crossing (National Highways)
- Medway Council
- NHS Kent and Medway Academy
- NHS Kent Community Health Trust
All of our Cornerstone Employers contribute in their own way, whether it be supporting careers activities and events through providing Enterprise Advisers and Industry Champions from their workforce, providing project support through wider Careers Hub initiatives, or through representing the employer voice across the county in our work with schools and colleges.
As the Cornerstone Group matures in the newly formed Hub, we will be reporting on a range of projects and activities being led and driven by our Cornerstone members.
