2006 graduate, and one of our industry media mentors, Jimmy Gregory works as a Programme Executive at The Prince’s Trust. He is based in Leicester and also Lincoln and Corby. With the University of Lincoln’s Careers & Employability team he’ll be running three self-employment workshops on 30 & 31 March and 8 April. Jimmy said: These workshops proved incredibly popular and are now fully booked. The Prince’s Trust have recognised the high demand for business support from university students and have opened up their monthly workshops at their office at Oak House to any final year students who were unable to book a place on the university on-campus workshops.
The Prince’s Trust’s Enterprise Programme played a pivotal role in helping me launch my own business in 2011. I now help to deliver the programme across the East Midlands and support others wanting to breathe life into their business ideas. Being a graduate from (this School) the University of Lincoln, I wasn’t aware that I was eligible for support from The Prince’s Trust. It’s my goal to make sure that students at Lincoln are fully aware of the support they can access after graduating.
