FuturesUP: Multi-industry Careers Event
What is FuturesUP?
FuturesUP is a networking event that brings together different employers to allow all students to interact with them and find out about the opportunities our partner companies have available.
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 university vs apprenticeship.
"Being able to speak to the people behind the apprenticeships, getting to know the different opportunities offered by the companies and talking with professionals were all great parts of the day for me" — FuturesUP attendee
The employers that you will meet at these events represent industries including law, engineering and technology.
Working out what to do when you finish school is really important. In fact, it could be one of the biggest choices you ever make.
At Uptree we know it is not easy to navigate through all the different possibilities.
This is the reason we host a multi-industry careers event every term.
Who can apply:
All UK students aged 16-19
