Careers Event for our Environmental Ecological and Industrial Biotechnology Students

Thank you so much to all our speakers from ecological and environmental consultancies, from conservation charities, businesses and government bodies – for giving up your day to inspire and ethuse our students. We had short talks from each speaker about what their job involves and advice for students; then speed interviews and CV workshops. See below. Students went away with contact details, with new resolves, with improved CVs and they even said they had fun. Employers also said it was valuable to meet and learn from the students.

Contributers: North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership, Northumberland National Park Authority, EcoNorth, BT Ecology, Budhaig Ecology, National Trust, Durham Wildlife Trust, Northumberland Wildlife Trust, ID GeoEnvironmental, ErgoEnvironmental, Cundall, Wardell-Armstrong, WSP, JBA Consultancy, Environment Agency.
