This year the Succeed with Social Sciences employability programme, in conjunction with the University of Nottingham, hosted a Careers in Politics and International Relations event.

The event took place on Wednesday 2 March 2016 and was attended by over 90 undergraduate and postgraduate students studying on a Politics or International Relations course.

The afternoon consisted of two lively panel sessions hosted by John Hess, former Political Editor for the East Midlands at the BBC. During the panel sessions the audience heard from a range of speakers including: Tony Roe (East Midlands Today), Riina Luik (European Parliament Information Office), Leah Kreitzman (UNICEF), Josie Kaye (Trust Works Global), Mark Nowottny (Restless Development), Jordan Rolfe (Charityworks) and Sean Turnbull (Three Faiths Foundation and Parliamentors).

The event closed with a networking session, giving students the opportunity to talk with the speakers in a more informal setting and gain advice and information that would help them with their future careers.

Helen Reed, Employability Coordinator for the School of Social Sciences said: "The joint event between the School of Social Sciences at NTU and the University of Nottingham was a great success. We were treated to talks by exceptional speakers and listened to some really inspiring stories that demonstrated the breadth of careers that Politics and International relations graduates can go on to pursue."
