My name is Sean Moran and I am a 16-year-old taking the next step in bringing my business idea to life. For the past few weeks, I have been working on a business plan, contacting app developers and even accountants. They have all been a big help in the planning process of the company but I am now at a more difficult stage, finding financial backing. So far I have had to use my personal money to fund the project but because I am still in school and don't have a full-time job, the company will have to receive some outside funds in order to survive.
Adren will operate through an app that will be strictly for job seekers aged 16-19 years old, this allows employers to advertise any job vacancies they have that don’t really need any past experience such as waiters, receptionists, dishwashers or even working in retail. These jobs are ideal for youngsters that are looking for a first job. This means that teenagers will finally have a job searching platform all to themselves!
Finding a job is never easy but at least when you are older you have some actual experience in the workplace, but imagine what its like for a 17-year-old who has just left school and has never had any real world experience, it's quite daunting. The only current options for someone in that age group are to go around handing in CVs to employers like a caveman or waste your time applying for jobs on sites like indeed.
Why it will work
There has been no disruption in the job market for many years, the last big movement in the employment industry was to online job searching but there is now a need for better quality platforms and with the world switching to mobile apps Adren will be filling a missive gap in the market.
Where your money will go
The £1,000 you will help us raise will mostly go to building a website. Instead of spending thousands of pounds on an app, we will first build a website so that we can test our idea and receive feedback from users to ensure that there is a need for our services.
