It is the vision and aim of our NHSG CareerConnect programme to inform, educate, enthuse and empower girls to achieve their potential in a wisely chosen career.
Our CareerConnect Coordinator, Kirsty Ridley, realises the programme’s aims by forging links with local businesses, alumnae and other members of the community to provide opportunities for girls. These include careers talks and assemblies, work experience days and the biannual NHSG CareerConnect Fair which this year will be held on 22nd March – see the programme below for a full list of speakers and exhibitors. If you would like to become involved with NHSG CareerConnect, please submit the form at the bottom of this page and Kirsty will be in touch.
