LiketoBe.org to host its inaugural Ethical Careers Event


LiketoBe.org, the online networking platform that raises the career aspirations of young people, is holding its inaugural Ethical Careers Event on Tuesday 5 March at the Gordano School in Bristol. Hosted by Chris Packham, the naturalist and television presenter, the event will feature professionals from a wide variety of businesses coming together to discuss the career options available to young people today and to address the ethical ramifications of those careers.

The event will be filmed by a professional TV crew and be available to view on the LiketoBe.org website from Thursday 7 March, as part of LiketoBe.org’s activities to support National Careers Week. Schools and students wishing to access the event need to register for free on LiketoBe.org. Once registered, not only can young people watch the filmed event, but they can also engage and network with a variety of independent professionals and businesses to discover what employment opportunities are available and learn what the most successful career paths are to take.

The Ethical Careers Event will feature a number of debates exploring topics such as: environmental responsibility; equal opportunities in the workplace; social responsibility of modern-day entrepreneurs; and cyber security. Representing a variety of industries, the speakers are experienced professionals who address ethical concerns in their businesses on a daily basis and include:

·      Adrian Ferraro, Founder & Director of STC Expeditions
·      Rosie Anderson, Cyber Security Recruitment Manager for Outsource UK
·      Dermot O’Reagan, Founder & MD of Grow Bristol CIC
·      Annie Broadbent, Organisational Development Manager, St Luke’s Hospice, Plymouth
·      Nick Hounsfield, Founder of The Wave
·      Jo Ainsworth, 2nd Year PhD student
·      James Brueton, CEO of Envirobuild
·      Shaun Giddins, Behavioural Change Coach at Network Rail

Antony Jinman, Founder of LiketoBe.org explains, “Issues such as the environment and equality are important to everyone, especially young people who are just starting out in the world. Many can feel like these concerns are a barrier to developing a career in certain subjects or that opportunities are closed to people from certain backgrounds.

“This is particularly true for hard to reach schools in rural or socially deprived locations. We want to show that this needn’t be the case and, along with these inspirational businesses and professionals, inspire and help pupils to aim for whatever they’d like to be.”

The event will be taking place within the Gordano School in Bristol. Dr Chris Beer – Teacher Lead for Careers at Gordano School says, “We’re really excited for students across all year groups at Gordano School to be engaging with the speakers and on-line employers that LiketoBe have brought together to discuss environmental responsibility.  We work hard to provide clear subject and community links to career paths and know how important it is to make learning interactive and relevant to our students – I’m sure they will respond enthusiastically to the debate that Chris Packham will ignite."
