A Cornerstone Employer is a business that is invested in the successful and sustainable delivery of careers education for young people and commits to join a leadership group of local businesses to support the schools, colleges and young people in their area. 

The Cornerstone Employers work together with their networks and the wider business community to ensure all young people have the opportunities they need to be prepared and inspired for the world of work.
 
They range from large to small employers, operating at a local or national level. 
 
However, they are all:
- experienced in engaging with education and so can lead by example and share their experience with other businesses
- dedicated to investing time and resource to benefit schools, colleges and young people
- committed to working with other Cornerstone Employers in an Opportunity Area or Careers Hub
- willing to galvanise their business networks in the area, to collaboratively meet the needs of schools, colleges and young people
- focussed on sustainability and act as an ambassador and champion for social mobility.
 
We are incredibly grateful for the support and dedication of our Cornerstone Employers. Our Cornerstone Employers work together with their networks and the wider business community to ensure all young people have the opportunities they need to be prepared and inspired for the world of work.
