Old Bedalian 2006

Have you undertaken any kind of further study since leaving Bedales and have you gained any further qualifications?

After Bedales I graduated with a 1st in BSc Biology with A Year Abroad from the University of Sheffield, studying for the year abroad at the University of Sydney.
I am currently studying for my CIM Professional Certificate in Marketing at the Cambridge Marketing College.

What kind of work are you currently involved in, and how and why have you come to be doing it?

I am currently the Marketing Executive at Kings Place, an arts venue in King's Cross, London. I started by doing a Marketing Traineeship with the City of London Festival in 2011, then worked briefly at Vintage TV before coming to Kings Place in September 2012 as Marketing Assistant. I was promoted in September 2013.

Bedales certainly helped me to get to where I am now

 

Did attending Bedales help you in getting to where you are now and how satisfied are you with what you are doing?

Bedales certainly helped me to get to where I am now. Having studied a science at university, I surprised myself by ending up back in the arts. My immersion in the arts at school certainly helped in this and I'm very happy where I am now. Though perhaps one day I'll merge marketing with biology by working for a wildlife organisation.

Have you been involved in any other interesting activities or occupations since leaving school?

After graduating in the summer of 2009, I saved up some money and travelled to South Africa in 2010. I spent eight and a half months volunteering on wildlife research projects, training as a Field Guide and teaching at a local bush school. This was all organised by Global Vision International, who I would highly recommend.
