Hosted in the impressive offices of Evelyn Partners, in the heart of the City of London, the Old Cliftonian Society was proud to host the first of its careers events outside of Bristol. Setting the tone for many more planned for the future.
Bringing current students, OCs and Clifton parents together, we are seeking to unlock the collective value networks can bring to bear on people looking to start, continue, improve or give something back to particular career choices.
Last week was focussed on Investment Management with distinguished speakers Stephen Zimmerman and Ben Britz giving their perspective on the industry, its mechanics, trends and career opportunities. The individual presentations quickly turned to a lively exchange of ideas, questions across the 55 participants, on topics ranging from the best post graduate courses, the pros and cons of degrees versus apprenticeships, interview techniques, training and experiences considered most desirable. The enthusiasm in the room was infectious and the participation energising.
Now we have formed the nucleus of the community, we aim to encourage internships, mentoring, interviews and CV assistance, share news about job opportunities and industry insight. We hope this is the start of an active and productive group.
Thank you to our hosts, guest speakers, and the OC team for pulling it all together to make such a successful inaugural event. If you’re interested in the sector – then let Lucy Nash know and we’ll get you into the community.

Watch out for the next one in the series planned for 2024.
