It was an early start for many students this morning as they filled the Terrace Café for the first in our series of Careers Breakfasts.
We were delighted to welcome Ms Jenny O’Donnell to speak about her career as an accident investigator.
Head of Careers, Dr Hensman, was thrilled that so many students made an early journey into school for the talk and he thanked Ms O’Donnell for her time and her fascinating presentation.
He said: “This has been an excellent start to our series of Careers Breakfast and I am very grateful to Ms O’Donnell for being our first speaker.
“Her background as a chartered engineer and human factors specialist is relevant to so many students as they start to think about further study and future careers.”
There was no shortage of questions from students as Ms O’Donnell spoke about her career path, gave examples of air accident investigations she has worked on and talked about how her work has led her to investigating accidents in other sectors, including nuclear, construction and medicine.
Dr Hensman added: “We have some really interesting speakers coming up after half-term, covering a variety of different industries and professions, and I would encourage students to sign up for as many as they can.
“The Careers Breakfasts are a great way for them to find out more about career options, particularly those that they might not yet be aware of.”
The next Careers Breakfast will be on Friday, 25 February with Dr Emma Palmer, International Family Lawyer.
Dr Palmer is Partner and Head of Family Law at MSB Solicitors in Liverpool, specialising in child abduction, forced marriage and honour-based abuse.
All Senior School pupils are welcome to attend and can sign up now on SOCS.
