Inspiring Careers Events

In 2021, in place of our usual ‘Careers Fair’ we were delighted to be able to offer over 50 online (mostly ‘live’) sessions, providing an opportunity for students to ‘meet’ a wide variety of professionals, find out more about their career paths and hear hints and tips for embarking on a career in their field.  

The online format meant we could increase our audience from 400 students and parents/carers to 1500 + TGS students and parents/carers plus students from other local schools. 

Speakers were varied and included a surgeon, supply chain director, chartered surveyor, fashion designer, charity chief executive, HR consultant, civil servant, commercial analyst, choreographer, construction engineer, medical researcher, customer experience director, polar explorer, investor relations executive, landscape architect and recruitment consultant; plus lawyers, cyber security experts, a range of communications specialists, a number of media experts including an editor and social media strategist and retail professionals. 

There was also the opportunity to find out more about student finance and studying abroad.   

This event would not have been possible without the gifts of time and expertise of speakers and without costs being covered by School Fund and Sponsorship. `
