The session will focus on highlighting the key areas that a large organisation like Sky faces in recruiting and developing the best future talent and provide practical advice on what schools can be doing now to prepare pupils for entering the workplace.

Our speakers will be:

Prior to this, she worked at Mendas (a Psychology Consultancy) as a Business Psychologist where she specialised in graduate recruitment and development working with organisations in multiple sectors to develop their practices to harness the full potential in people. Amandeep’s role at Highgate School involves overseeing the planning and management of day-to-day careers events and activity, alongside exploring and developing the wider careers strategy.
