Alumni volunteers help deliver USW Careers events and inspire the next generation


It was a busy day on campus today as we welcomed two keynote alumni speakers from industry, plus two panels of alumni to our latest USW Careers events - #CyberFutures and #CriminalJusticeFutures.

Think big. Create your own path. Do not underestimate what is possible - Patrick Stevens, Head of International, Crown Prosecution Service

Designed to inspire current students and improve network connections, both events drew on USW's alumni network to provide real time  insight into those looking to pursue a future in cyber, gaming and the digital economy, as well as those considering a future in law and criminal justice.

Keynote speaker Roger Crothers, Head of Technology for BBC Wales was joined by #CyberFutures alumni panel members Anna Webb-Price (Alert Logic), Anouska Streets (Monitise FINkit), Michael Williams (Northrop Grumman), Hamed Amiri (Target Group), Mohammed Ahmed (Yolk Recruitment) and Tom Maloney (Freelance).

Patrick Stevens, Head of International for the Crown Prosecution Service delivered the keynote address for our #CriminalJusticeFutures attendees, and was joined by a range of alumni panel members drawn from South Wales Police, the Prison Service and the Civil Service.

Katy Hales, Alumni Development Officer, who manages the USW Volunteer programme added: "The University is committed to connecting its student and graduate communities. Our careers events are the perfect way for current students considering their future career path, to gain insight from former students who have 'been there, and done that'."
