Our weekly dose of Career Insights is here!
This week James Wilcox, General Manager of Huntingdon and Nottingham Racecourses describes the unique experience that working in the industry gives him, managing the success of the racecourses, contributing to events and races seen by millions of people – and how work experience was key to getting his foot in the door of the industry.
Form the Future is delighted to support this project. We help young people find their route through education into employment, and what better way to do so than to showcase a world of possibilities on our doorstep. Information about the world of work and a range of different pathways, growth areas and opportunities, strengthens young peoples’ capacity to make informed decisions and positive transitions. Ultimately, this is about inspiring young people to think about and plan their next step.
Cambridge Ahead is passionate about the importance of young people getting the best possible education about career opportunities available to them and highlighting the various pathways they can take into work. In order to support this objective, raise career aspirations and broaden horizons for young people, Cambridge Ahead has produced this series of videos for use in schools and colleges across the region and beyond.
