We administer leading edge psychometric diagnostic texts (e.g. Belbin, OPQ) to help understand your strengths and areas needing improvement. We provide workshops and arrange for specialist advisors to present sector-specific career talks. We also annually host Victor Loewenstein (former headhunter with Egon Zehnder) to explain how the executive search sector can work for your benefit.

In addition to a weekly newsletter announcing key events, we provide a substantial range of online resources, including an MBA-specific job register, employer database and materials to help you prepare for your job search.

Career Treks

In addition to our annual MBA Careers Fair, we organise a series of visits to specific locations to help connect you to key organisations. We have previously visited Aberdeen to meet companies in the oil and gas sector, and London to meet consultancy companies and financial service recruiters. We also arrange regular visits funded by Santander.
