The annual OB Careers Evening was held on Friday 26th April and welcomed back some familiar faces.
Old Breconians Catherine Williams, Anna Hilton, Richard Price, Duncan Jones, Des Lally, Jack Goring, Ed Barnett and Simon Games-Thomas covered careers in Medicine, Nursing, Law, Surveying, Finance, Business, Trading and the Army. All of the Sixth Form listened as the guests gave an insight into their chosen career in the Chapel. The final part of the evening saw the Upper Sixth and Old Breconians congregate in the Clive Richards Room for a drinks reception where there was an opportunity for careers advice and tips. This year’s leavers were welcomed into the Old Breconian Association and presented with Old Breconian ties.
Any Old Breconian who feels able to help with careers advice by coming along and giving a brief 10-minute talk on their chosen career should contact Huw Richards on firstname.lastname@example.org as he is already on the lookout for next year!
