Our team of champions are fundamental to our work.
The role involves working with five Orbiteers, and providing each of them with an hour of 1:1 mentoring every month. Over a twelve month period, you’ll see your group of Orbiteers progress and develop their business ideas and career plans from scratch.
Champions are required to:
Our champions come from a range of industries, and compliment our programmes through transferring their knowledge and experience to their group of Orbiteers.
We’re looking for Champions who:
Champions sign up to join Orbit through the form at the bottom of this page. After we receive your application, the Programme Manager for the region will schedule a call with you to discuss your background, area of expertise, skill-set, and where you could fit into the programme.
We may ask to conduct disclosure checks. This ensures that you haven’t been disqualified to work with young people in the past.
Champions are required to set aside 5 hours per month to work with our Orbiteers. Champion meetings take place at a time agreed between the Champion and the Orbiteer, and most champion meetings take place outside of traditional working hours, including in the evenings and at weekends.
Champion meetings take place at a venue chosen through consultation with the Orbiteer. The meetings could take place in coffee shops or the Champion’s office. There are restrictions on where meetings take place, and we don’t allow Champion meetings to occur in venues where alcohol consumption takes place, and the personal homes of both Champions and Orbiteers.
Champions are compensated with an hourly rate and they receive an exclusive package of benefits available to them for their support of our Orbiteers.
“An incredible experience. To sum it all up… Life Changing.”

Being a champion requires just five hours of your time per month. Champion meetings tend to occur outside of traditional working times, such as at weekends or on weekday evenings. You can set your own working times through consultation with your Orbiteers.
You’ll be given a digital training course after being accepted as a champion. This outlines the role and what’s required.
Champion meetings take place in locations agreed upon between the Orbiteer and yourself. Locations could include coffee shops, co-working spaces or the Champion’s office. There are restrictions on where meetings take place and we cannot allow champions to meet with Orbiteers in houses, flats, or in bars serving alcohol.
Yes, you’ll be working with the same Orbiteers every month. This allows you to build a trusting relationship with your Orbiteers. In the event of another champion being unable to make arrangements with Orbiteers due to time constraints, we may have to temporarily alter the Orbiteers you work with.
