Sheffield Connections - Peter Chambers
Sheffield Connections offers students, including those from a widening participation background, the chance to meet inspirational and successful alumni. A small group of students meet the graduate in an informal, relaxed setting over tea and cake. Students are then able to ask questions about the graduate’s time at Sheffield and career, as well as discussing their own career options or University choices.
Peter Chambers, BA Geography 1979, Senior Advisor, Europe at Casey Quirk & Associates LLC. volunteered his time to speak to students and offered them valuable, personal advice on the financial services industry, as well as sharing information about his own career path and interests.
Students found out more about a career in financial services, whilst increasing their confidence of networking in a friendly environment. The meeting with Peter also gave the students the opportunity to seek advice on their own career choices.
