Young Professionals

Young Professionals is a networking group where you can meet like-minded people, build business relationships and develop career opportunities,

We can help you to build long-term business relationships where you can share experiences and best practice, promoting and connecting members and their firms.

Networking in the early stages of your career gives you a ready-made network of contacts to use as you make your way up the career ladder.

On the first Thursday of each month we host Thirsty Thursday – a free event for members and non-members. It’s your opportunity to find out more about us, meet committee members and fellow members over a drink. The event moves across the region each month to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to attend.

Our quarterly CPD seminars encourage the growth and development of our members at an affordable price.

We also like to have fun – building both a network of professional contacts and creating lifelong friendships.

Our quarterly social events provide an opportunity to get to know your contacts better in a more relaxed setting. Recent socials have included a golf lesson, bowling and ice-skating.

One of the key advantages of being a part of our group is our mentoring scheme. The scheme gives you the opportunity to pair up with a prominent business person from the local area who will act as your mentor, guide you and promote your future leadership.

A new initiative for 2015 is our fundraising arm. We aim to provide opportunities to engage with the wider community by offering opportunities to volunteer, fundraise, sponsor and give back to the local area.

Joining Young Professionals is FREE so why not come along?
