Exciting Opportunities + Events
We hope you had a great week and enjoyed looking over all the resources we provided in our last newsletter.
The UK has officially entered a recession with the effects set to be more catastrophic than the last, as the economy has shrunk by 20.6% between April and June. With thousands of jobs loss already, it's likely many more people will lose their jobs. That’s why it’s more important than ever for BYP to support our community.
During the pandemic, you saw us double down on content, and our job board has exploded with job opportunities. Over 30 new organisations have posted on the BYP Network Jobs Board, and over ten annual partners including; Checkout.com, Cisco, Morgan Stanley, and Co-op. In the last quarter of the year, expect professional development workshops, an eBook, more job roles and a focus on connectivity through our app!
Our equity crowdfund campaign currently has 1,093 investors at a total investment of £607,218. With only four days left to invest, let your friends, family, and allies know about our campaign.

Register For Free Access To The Derek Bruce Associates Mentor Network
Are you looking for a mentor?
Well, Derek Bruce Associates will match you to a mentor. As a mentee, you will need to define a desired outcome for the mentoring. Once you are fully connected, you and your mentor will also agree when and how your first meeting will take place.
The frame allows for mentors and mentees to communicate for one to two hours per month for three to six months maximum. And Derek Bruce Associates will check-in with the mentors during each mentoring relationship. Mentors and mentees will complete a simple persona profile, which will help to match the right mentor to the right mentee.
