We are proud to announce that May Foxton has taken on the role of Enterprise Adviser (EA) for Outwood Academy Foxhills, Scunthorpe.
May, Learning and Development Facilitator for Bradbury Group, decided to volunteer for the role as she is passionate about giving back to the local community and ensuring young people achieve their full potential.
Within the group, May is responsible for developing our apprentices, trainees and employee training programmes, with a particular emphasis on recruiting young people onto the Youth Engineering Scunthorpe apprenticeship scheme. This lends itself to working with regional schools and colleges, which is how May discovered the role.
When asked about why she wanted to become an EA, May commented “Youth Engineering is all about giving the young people of Scunthorpe a chance to shine. Becoming an Enterprise Advisor will allow me to support the students of Foxhills, raising their aspirations and supporting them to pursue their career, whilst also developing the connection between local schools, Bradbury Group and Youth Engineering.”
As part of the role, May will spend approximately eight hours a month working with the school, developing strategies, supporting careers activities & programmes and encouraging local businesses to get involved.
“We are proud of the work May is doing to support local schools and colleges” says Zane Dextor, HR Director for Bradbury Group. “This role will allow May to work strategically with local schools, showcasing and developing pathways into the Engineering sector, one of the largest industries and biggest employers in the region.”
An Enterprise Adviser is a volunteer from business who works closely with the headteacher or Senior Leadership Team of a school or college to provide strategic support. The advantage to an education provider is the gaining of business experience and professional networks to help develop and implement their careers strategy, putting opportunities with local employers at the heart of a young person’s education.
May will support with developing a strategic plan for Outwood Academy Foxhills, to ensure every young person receives meaningful workplace experiences and engaging with other local businesses to encourage support and involvement with local schools.
“We are delighted to have May on board” expressed Hayley Beardmore, Enterprise Coordinator for the Greater Lincolnshire region. “Her knowledge in engineering careers will be an asset to Outwood Academy Foxhills and the Enterprise network in general. We are very much looking forward to working with her”.

Alongside her EA role, May is responsible for the training and development of our young people, apprentices, and employees within Bradbury Group.
May’s ambition is to have every individual, regardless of position, on a customised training plan, supporting both individual ambitions and the company’s growth through a skilled and experienced workforce. To find out more about a career with Bradbury Group, visit our dedicated page.
