Norwich's first enterprise adviser partnership

A Broadland Business Park firm of accountants, business advisers and financial planners and a Norwich school have got together to form the city’s first ‘Enterprise Adviser’ link – designed to support schools to build sustainable careers and enterprise structures and build lasting links between the worlds of education and business.

Vicky Webber, HR adviser at Lovewell Blake, has become the city’s first Enterprise Adviser at Thorpe St Andrew High School and Sixth Form. She will be working with senior staff at the school to advise on their employer engagement strategy, and helping the school build a better network of business contacts.
