STUDENTS and graduates facing up to the challenges of finding work in the wake of Covid-19 have an opportunity to gain career advice at an online event.

Social enterprise AFBE-UK Scotland, which supports aspiring engineers from under-represented groups, is hosting its careers programme on September 15, in partnership with Spirit Energy.

The Transition event will be split in to two-parts with presentations by senior management at Spirit Energy form the first element, with the second section – limited to 20 people – consisting of mock interviews and career advice from staff.

Ollie Folayan, chairman of Aberdeen-based AFBE-UK Scotland, said: “These events have always proved popular in previous years and we’re confident this year’s online programme will also be of value.”

The Transition initiative has supported more than 2,500 young professionals over the years, with face-to-face events previously held in Aberdeen and Edinburgh.

A survey revealed that 70% of people who attended the programme have been successful in securing relevant positions within 12 months of the event.

Established in 2011, AFBE-UK Scotland promotes diversity and inclusion. It encourages all young people, particularly those of black and minority ethnic (BME) origin, to consider a career in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM).
