Join us for our upcoming virtual webinar, in collaboration with Broadgate Search Social, where we

With a variety of different ways to enter the financial services landscape, you can expect an insightful panel discussion highlighting personal career experiences, challenges, as well as obstacles of transitioning and upskilling. Expect to hear some inspiring anecdotes from our panel, highlighting personal career choices and decisions that have helped shape their career today.

Following the panel discussion, expect a live Q&A session where you can be a part of the conversation. We will also be hosting an additional networking session, where we plan to continue the conversation and address any further burning questions.

 currently run relaxed, informal and free networking events in Manchester and London. If you are leaving or have left the Services (Navy, Army or RAF) or alternatively want to support those that are leaving/have left, you are welcome to attend. Networking is an essential aspect of resettlement and continued career success. Invite friends or associates along too and feel part of something again.  All you need to bring is a business card and an open mind.

Our events are intended to provide Service leavers with the opportunity to learn more about businesses of all sizes, and the breadth of opportunities within the UK’s technology, Fintech, Recruitment and Cyber sectors. We will also provide hints and tips on recruitment processes, CV and social media advice, and help you understand what businesses look for in candidates.

Who for?

Events offer free access to a Service Leaver and Veteran community, particularly to those looking for new and alternative opportunities. We provide the chance to network with effective, adaptable and motivated people who would add exceptional value to your business.
