Career Immersion Event 2021

This event is designed to help students navigate the current uncertainty and make informed choices about their prospective careers.

Each immersion group provides an insight into what schemes are available, how to make a strong application, what career trajectories look like; and students also hear from recent graduates and apprentices who talk through their journey so far.

Each organisation spends up to an hour providing the kind of deep immersion that isn’t always available at traditional career fairs, and they encourage students to listen into the other sessions as well to make sure they get that rounded and informed view. This will be followed by a virtual Q&A session where students are invited to ask any questions or air any career concerns.

Spanning a range of sectors from banking, tech and law through to government, medicine and policing, organisations participating in the 2021 event include NatWest Group, KPMG, BT Group, UK Civil Service, Facebook, Metropolitan Police, CBRE, Trowers & Hamlins law firm and Healthcare professionals (specifically Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy).

The sessions are running during the evening over the next two weeks.

Black talent virtual insight event with Grant Thornton – 26 October 2.30-3.30pm

 

At Grant Thornton, our aim is to build a workforce that is representative of the clients we work with and the communities we live in. Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because we’re all at our best when we’re able to be ourselves.

They know black talent is currently underrepresented in our organisation, and sector. We want to change that. This means attracting and coaching black students through our recruitment process and creating a fully inclusive environment where black talent can progress and flourish.

They also know that some candidates from under-represented groups have less access to coaching, careers advice and mentors. This shouldn’t be the case. They want to make sure everyone has equal access to careers guidance and assessment support regardless of background. This is why they are hosting a virtual insight event for black students on Tuesday 26th October at 2.30pm – 3.30pm via Zoom.

 

The event will provide students with:

  • A chance to meet some of our senior black leaders – we want to inspire and encourage you with our stories
  • An opportunity to ask questions and debate topics that are important to you with associates and leaders within our firm
  • Guidance on applying for apprenticeship, undergraduate or graduate programmes – we’ll provide lots of hints and tips to help you succeed in the job market.

If you are interested in a career in Accountancy or business, register here to be part of the conversation and to receive guidance that will support you on your career journey.
