A Newcastle University Business School Alumni event

Join us and fellow Business School alumni for an evening of insights into the key factors for a successful career in London.

In uncertain times and a fiercely competitive job market, you need to be able to demonstrate how you can outperform your peers and exceed employer expectations. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet with industry experts who will share their experiences, answer your questions and advise on key success factors which could help you advance your career.

You will be able to ask our panel everything you’ve wanted to know about getting ahead, whatever stage you’re at in your career: whether you’re looking to take the next step on the career ladder, enhance your employment prospects, or even secure your first job in the City.

There will also be the chance to network with our panellists and senior level professionals from global brands Nike and Mothercare; Publicis Media – part of global communications group Publicis Groupe; multinationals PWC and EY; and successful start-ups from the FinTech and F&B sectors.

Representatives from leading recruitment specialists Nigel Wright and Gradvert will also be on hand to provide support, along with members of Newcastle University’s Careers Service.
