A major Northern Ireland broker has announced a new partnership to support and equip young people in the business world.

AbbeyAutoline has embarked on a strategic alliance with Young Enterprise, stepping into the role of an impact business backer. The partnership aligns with both the broker’s and Young Enterprise’s objective to foster business acumen and self-confidence among young individuals.

As an impact business backer, AbbeyAutoline pledges to support 50 entrepreneurs within local schools each month, an initiative that is in line with the broker’s DE&I values.

Julie Gibbons, managing director of AbbeyAutoline, expressed the company’s enthusiasm for the partnership, emphasising the critical role of such programs in cultivating a vibrant future business community.

“AbbeyAutoline is proud to be partnering with Young Enterprise NI to help develop the next generation of entrepreneurs in Northern Ireland,” Gibbons said. “Programmes such as this are of vital importance if we are to encourage the business owners and changemakers of the future. It is their enthusiasm, tenacity and acumen that will attract investment in our economy and drive enterprise.”

Young Enterprise NI, represented by Carol Fitzsimons, MBE, chief executive, welcomed AbbeyAutoline’s involvement, praising the insurance broker’s commitment to empowering Northern Ireland’s youth.

“This investment empowers 50 young people every month, equipping them with the skills and confidence to become the driving force of a sustainable and thriving Northern Ireland. This is all about belief, inspiration, and paving the way for a brighter future, one young entrepreneur at a time,” Fitzsimmons said.

In January, the insurance broker also announced the conclusion of its 50th anniversary program, revealing that it was able to extend support to over 40 charity and voluntary organisations.
