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 signature event is ‘Thirsty Thursday’ – a free bi-monthly event for members and non-members. It’s your opportunity to find out more about us and meet committee and fellow members over a drink. The event moves across the region to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to attend. The event alternates between meeting for drinks and doing a more social activity whilst networking. Alternating between the two styles allows new members to feel more comfortable.

Our 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 social events provide an opportunity to get to know your contacts better in a more relaxed setting. We go head to head with the Young Lawyers network once a year at our popular rounders match. We hold summer and Christmas socials which always prove to be popular.

A further element of our network is our charity work.  We aim to provide our network members with opportunities to engage with the wider community and give back to local areas.

Joining Young Professionals is FREE so why not come along?
