Do you ever watch the news and it seems like the only way to get a senior job in Government is to be privileged, white and educated at Oxbridge? Well, join us for an inspirational evening of careers advice and debate from people who weren't.

5 Senior Civil Servants, from diverse backgrounds, are lending you their time to tell you how they broke through - and how you can do. Ask them questions about their career journey, the challenges they had to overcome, and the changes that still need to be made.

This event is free and open to everyone, whether you're a student, a civil servant, or just interested in developing your career. Please reserve your ticket on eventbrite to guarantee that you don't miss out.

January- what a month. Probably the worst month for things to go wrong. So, what happens if your exam results aren’t what you planned? Or you keep getting rejected from your graduate job applications? Or you are kinda just over life right now? Luckily we have a whole blog series dedicated to tackling all of this in the name of ‘Resilience’. Bounce back this month to your badass self. And in the meantime, read how not to do a Will, and most importantly, not to give up
