Can you offer an Internship opportunity to current BGS?

We hold a database of current students at university and what they are studying. Please let us know whether you have any opportunities coming up in your firm and we’ll make sure that alumni get the message.

Alternately, for current students, there is always the opportunity for work experience and work shadowing. The school is keen to get its students out into the real world and learn real life experience as part of their academic development. Let us know if you’d like to offer these opportunities.

Host an Event

Mentoring a Student…

Could you mentor a student?

Our mentoring scheme aims to match BGS alumni going to University who wants to participate to an Alumni Mentor with relevant experience in the student’s career area of interest. The mentoring scheme runs each year from November until the following summer, and you should be prepared to give about an hour per month of your time. Ideally, you will be able to meet your student mentee at least once face-to-face during the scheme, mentoring can also take place by phone, e-mail and Skype.

The aim of the programme is to help students prepare to find a job when they leave University, and activities could include reviewing CVs and applications, giving information and advice about their chosen career, helping them to identify potential careers, encouraging them to source work experience and internships and being a general source of support and guidance.

We welcome interest from all alumni – you do not have to have mentored before or reached the ‘top’ of your career to be able to be a mentor and we are also keen to hear from young alumni. You will only be matched to a student where relevant and we provide guidance and support on the mentoring process.

If you are interested in mentoring a student, please sign up to the website using the members link in the menu and click on the mentoring role.
