GCU London recently welcomed Alumni and industry professionals on to campus for an evening called ‘Career Tips from the Insiders’.

Recent GCU London Alumni, including Alison Laing, Liza Van Roey, Jessica Frost and Lili Zhang talked to students and shared career tips and advice. Since graduating from GCU London, they have gone on to gain established careers and experience in marketing and luxury, with brands such as ASOS, Diane von Furstenberg, Monreal, hotels.com, Ritz Carlton and Savills.

Also in attendance were Elite Associates, a leader in the Luxury Recruitment industry. Elite led a presentation and Q&A on working in luxury retail at the start of the evening, which was of particular interest to our MSc Luxury brand Marketing and MBA Luxury Brand Management students.

Sue Moseley, GCU London Careers Advisor, said: “I’m really happy that it went so well. The students were really engaged and enthusiastic and the alumni were just great.”

Simon Smith, Student and Learning Service Manager, was also delighted to catch up with past students, and said: “It was great to see some familiar faces on campus again and to hear how well they’re all doing in their careers.”

The GCU London careers service leads weekly careers success workshops on various subjects from tailoring your CV to updating your LinkedIn. To see the upcoming calendar of events, please visit our Careers section or contact Sue Moseley by emailing Sue.Moseley@gcu.ac.uk.
