Young Chamber

Our Executive Board are looking forward to volunteering and meeting new businesses at the B2B Exhibition at Norwich City Football Club on 13th October. This event is held by the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce. The best of the region’s businesses will be there demonstrating their latest technologies and innovations. Last year there were more than 600 visitors in attendance. The student’s roles will be to assist chamber staff in directing visitors, greeting, signing visitors and VIPs in and always to help collate survey answers. There are so many benefits to sending our students out there including to network and meet potential employers, valuable work experience, enhancing skills and CV along with making it a fun experience.

This will be a brilliant opportunity for the Executive Board and with so many new faces it will give them some background on the kind of events we support and what Young Chamber is all about. With such experience it will look brilliant on their CV’s along with personal statements for those wanting to go to University. Photos and an article will follow the event.

The big Careers Fair is upon us. This year it is on the 18th October. We have some fantastic companies coming in to speak to students about their business with answering all possible questions. The list is endless as to who is coming and what sector they are from. We have tried to choose something for everyone this year without focussing too heavily on one sector. Last year was a real success and we hope for this year to be much better. We have attached the list of all companies that are joining us this year. We have hair and beauty to the Navy, Aviva to Access To Music. There is such a huge variety that it will interest every student. We are happy to have UCFB joining us finally this year who are the College of Football Management.

Students will be thriving with information and carrying (literally) tonnes of prospectuses and books for such keen evening reading. We have a lot of support for those students not understanding their chosen career or who do not know what they wish to do when older. That is why we have two lovely Careers Advisors at the front in hope that they will give some useful tips to those students that need more support.

We are hoping all students will go home with a hamster running in the wheel, full of ideas as to careers and whether to choose to go to University or apprenticeship routes. Article and photographs will be added after the event.
