This session will help you engage with the idea of a fulfilling career based on your own aspirations and wellbeing. Understanding how to reflect on one’s skills and aspirations means you can make the most informed and proactive choices possible in regards to what path you wish to take towards their dream career. Careers should not be centered around wages alone but instead take into account all that a person is good at, what they enjoy doing and what suits them as a person.
Push educate students on the many different ways you can gain experience and qualifications to put you where you want to be and with so many different pathways, learning to make great choices is the first step towards finding the right path.
Join Sophie Addison to hear about her career in Politics and the HMRC
"I am in my 3rd year on a graduate scheme with HMRC, called the Tax Specialist Programme. Through this, I have done a lot of training and many exams to become a Corporation Tax Specialist. I work in Counter Avoidance, so my job is to investigate and challenge the use of complex tax avoidance schemes. I am nearing my promotion date, when I will become the youngest person at my level in the regional office. I also volunteer in the Labour Party as Chair of Bristol Young Labour and Youth Rep for Bristol West CLP"
