Masters students to be offered memberships


Fifty postgraduate students are to benefit from free Future Faces memberships thanks to a partnership with Aston University. Students starting a Masters course at Aston University this year can


apply for one of the free memberships. By partnering with Future Faces, Aston University will provide the


successful 50 students with the opportunity to build their profile, grow their network and gain access to industry leaders while studying. Future Faces provides regular professional development and networking


events, as well as opportunities to be mentored by business leaders. Since the pandemic, events have moved from face-to-face to online to


ensure that members continue to have the opportunity to develop in their careers. Postgraduate students at Aston University are taught how to develop new virtual skills as part of professional development programmes on their course. Saskia Loer Hanssen, deputy vice chancellor (engagement) at Aston


University, said: “We recognised that many students were looking to study a postgraduate course from September to progress further while the economic situation improves. By partnering with Future Faces we will help 50 of our most talented students to use this time to get ahead and accelerate their careers through access to this important business community.” Paul Faulkner, chief executive of Greater Birmingham Chambers of


Commerce, said: “This initiative from Aston University is a real investment in the professional development of its students, providing them with access to invaluable business opportunities and networks. “Investing in students is particularly crucial amid the Covid-19 crisis, if


we are to mitigate in some way the negative economic impact that the crisis has had in Greater Birmingham and beyond.”

Chamber to support Jericho


A charity that has been helping marginalised people across the region for nearly 20 years has been chosen as Future Faces’ charity of the year.


Jericho started in 1987 as a drop-in service for


residents of Balsall Heath, Birmingham. Originally founded by Reverend John Mallard,


pastor at the Edward Road Baptist Church, the organisation now operates seven social enterprises which provide employment and training to unemployed individuals. Those individuals gain vocational skills and


secure sustainable employment during and after working within the social enterprises. Jericho provides vital work opportunities for


people who have experience long-term unemployment, homelessness, alcohol or substance misuse, or have a lack of skills or qualifications, a criminal record, lack of work experience or mental health conditions. Mark Hipwell, president of Future Faces, said:


Creating opportunities: Jericho’s ‘Wood Shack’ recycling social enterprise


“Jericho stood out to us with their legacy of work in aiding people to secure jobs, something close to my heart as a huge believer in social enterprises. We were impressed by the essential service they offer to the communities in which they serve.”
