Get a feel for your chosen sector with Insider Insights Get a feel for your chosen sector with Insider Insights

Are you keen to find out more about a particular sector? Then Insider Insights are for you!

If you already know the sector you would like to work in and are looking for further information on this sector and/or how to progress within it, these one off information sessions with a professional in the field can provide you with the information you need.

The session will give you the chance to talk to a mentor, either by telephone, email or Skype for 30-45 minutes, to find out more about their job and the sector they work in. Insider Insights are intended as one-off conversations, rather than a continued period of support.

Once you register on the programme for Insider Insights you will be given access to our mentors offering these sessions. We have a variety of different mentors in a wide range of sectors and subject to each mentor’s capacity/availability, you can be matched for a number of Insider Insights. You should not expect to be offered work experience from your mentor and we would discourage you from asking.

Please note being matched on the programme is subject to capacity. If we are unable to match you, we will endeavour to help you by directing you to our other services.

Who can apply?

Insider Insights are open to all year groups and all levels of study, as well as recent graduates (within three years of graduation). Support is also available for current students and recent graduates looking to set up or grow their own business.

When do they take place?

Insider Insights can take place at any time throughout the academic year, usually between October and June. We would encourage you to apply early.
