Tom Goes Back To Uni

Reasons to choose Wilson Browne

Our very own Tom Warrender went back (online at least!) to university last week as he gave a careers talk to students at The University of Northampton.

Tom graduated from the University of Northampton (or UCN as it was then!) back in 2004. He spoke to students about his time at UCN, his career path thereafter (from the Legal Practice Course through to his Training Contract and then career progression from then on) drawing on his own experiences from work experience whilst still at University, to volunteering at the Citizens Advice Bureau, as well as talking through his career journey as a whole.

There were no fancy PowerPoint presentations, but just a raw and honest talk from Tom about his career to date. “It was important for me to be open and honest with the students, this wasn’t a glitzy recruitment drive for WB or for the legal profession, but just intended to be an insightful and ‘real’ snippet of my journey”. The talk will be followed by a question and answer session allowing students to put their careers questions direct to a Partner in a business employing 160 staff across 6 different offices.

The University reported that this talk had the highest sign-up rate since the university started hosting these events. Given the positive feedback from the event it is hoped that, as the roadmap is followed and the world continues to open up, Tom can go back and speak to the students in person next time.
