Deciding what to do when you finish school is important. In fact, it could be one of the biggest choices you’ll ever make. That’s why we’ll be hosting our interactive, multi-industry FuturesUP careers event in London in October 2024. The focus will be on careers in Law and Finance, available pathways, related transferable skills and live opportunities from September 2025 onwards.

You will meet many of our partner companies from the Law and Finance industries!

Why you should attend: 

1. Be inspired by the different careers available and discover where your grades & experiences can take you.

2. Gain access to a professional network of industry leaders and decision-makers who could hold the key to your future career!

3. Ask questions and hear first-hand stories from current apprentices, graduates, Uptree alumni and professionals from our partner companies. These are people who really understand your position and have been through the process themselves.

4. Improve your confidence when applying to jobs in the future. Get a true insight into what makes an application stand out, where to start, how to interview and what company culture really means - and much more!

You'll get to take part in a wide range of interactive sessions on the day and get the chance to speak to professionals, recruiters, and current apprentices and graduates from all of the brilliant Uptree employer partners.

Feedback from Uptree alumni students is that our FuturesUP events were the first step in helping them discover what they wanted to do in the future - whether that was a subject, career, or deciding whether to go to university or undertake an apprenticeship - don't miss out on this unique opportunity and sign up today.
