Students and alumni connect at Bristol Career Insights 2019

A big thank you to our Bristol Volunteers for giving their time, experience and expertise to our final year students and recent graduates, at our latest Bristol Career Insights events. Alumni shared their career stories and experiences to help our recent graduates take positive next steps in their careers.

We welcomed alumni from a number of different industries to speak to current students and recent graduates about their next steps – from securing a career in the city to setting up their own business; across the arts, legal, technology, finance and many more!

Below, read recent graduate and alumni speaker experiences of the events. You can also view pictures of these events by visiting the University of Bristol alumni and friends Flickr page.

I met a range of interesting people, professional alumni in positions/roles that I wouldn’t usually have access to or think about engaging with. But it’s amazing what great advice you can glean when you go along and ask for it.”

Recent graduate: Joel Willcocks (BSc 2018), Service Executive at Appear Here




“I was glad to have the opportunity to give something back to the University of Bristol, which has benefited me greatly in my career. It was also nice to have an opportunity to reflect on my own work philosophy in the hope of having something worthwhile to share with recent Bristol graduates.”

Alumni speaker: Patrick Raleigh (BSc 2003), Director of Country Risk at Bank of America Merrill Lynch

We will be running our next Bristol Career Insights events in Autumn 2019. If you would like to be involved, please contact
