Careers Talks

It's always fascinating to find out what former pupils go on to do and as a school, we're always keen to raise awareness of the sorts of possibilities that are available to girls once they leave the confines of EHS.

From medicine, TV, finance, fashion, the armed forces, aviation, IT, law, music, academia, retail, architecture, health and professional services, there aren't many sectors that EHS 'Old Girls' have not entered. We work hard to ensure that whilst girls are with us they are exposed to as wide a variety of different career opportunities and paths as possible. As well as dedicated careers staff, advice and resources in school, we also work closely with our Old Girls Association to match current students with mentors in specific sectors. We are always amazed by the generosity of our Old Girls in helping guide current students, giving up their time to offer an 'insiders view' into different careers.

Our regular EHS careers talks are another brilliant way of giving girls a glimpse into life in a particular field.  Today saw our latest installment and pupils were lucky enough to have the opportunity to hear from former student, Henrietta Mooney, about her journey since leaving EHS in 2014. After studying Fashion Management at Nottingham Trent University, Henni went on to secure a placement as a Trainee Buyer at Debenhams in London before last year moving on to work in the buying department of retail giant, Aldi. Henni's talk sparked lots of interest and questions and she gave us a really interesting account of working in the retail sector - and particularly the challenges that have been presented during the pandemic.

Another resource that provides a really fascinating snapshot of the divers career paths that EHS pupils take, is our EHS Careers instagram account, @ehscareers, which features short profiles of EHS alumnae journeys since leaving EHS. It really is well worth a look if you're on instagram and you can link to it directly from here.
