As well as hearing from the speakers, students had the opportunity to meet with them individually to ask for specific ideas or employment opportunities. Daljit Kang, Principal Lecturer for Roehampton Business School said the event was a good opportunity for students to meet major players in the business world. She said: “Land that Job is one of our many events that brings students and professionals together, and highlights the strong relationship the Business School has with these companies. We are grateful to the speakers for giving up their time to offer their advice to our students.”

Speakers included Will Banks from Challenger Capital, Stephen Ludlow from Ludlow Thompson estate agency and Roehampton Honorary doctorate holder David Sanger from ScentAir. In addition, Reece Ellis from Santander, Tebz Khan from Cleveland Cosmetic Dental Implant Clinic and Jordine Bartlett from the Financial Times, who are all Business School graduates also spoke at the event to show what a Business-related degree has helped them to achieve.

Ms Bartlett set out her career path and how she landed her current position through LinkedIn, which led to her dream job working at the Financial Times specialising in Fashion, Lifestyle and Culture in Africa. She encouraged the students to make the most of these opportunities, and connect with industry guests because they can offer a wider network of contacts that might lead to a job opportunity.

The following businesses were represented at the event:

KPMG, Scentair, The Challenge Network, Cleveland Cosmetic Dental Implant Clinic, Santander Bank, Cabinet Office, Haymarket Media Ltd, Blue Horseshow Accounts Ltd, Financial Times Group and Ludlow Estate Agents.
