Tips & support

Be organised

We have partnerships with several employers who all very keen to help you secure roles with them. We get many signups daily and we encourage you to be as organised as possible, know what company you are interested in and the roles you are keen on applying to, if you are not sure that is also okay, we can help you get organised! However for those that do know what they wish to do and what you are interested in be sure to keep a track of this and make a note about any interviews you are due to attend so we can coach you.

Sector support

If you are unsure about which sector to go into, we are here to help and give you unlimited resources to give you direction, although by the end of your session with our mentors it is ultimately your choice which career path you wish to take in the end. There are unlimited opportunities!

Meet us at campus events

  Research which companies are attending the fair (Graduate Recruiters would be impressed if you do your research!)
  Appear professional – be polite, be confident and show your enthusiasm
  Discuss what you are able to offer in terms of your skills
  Make sure you arrive early avoid the “lunch time rush hour!”
  We encourage students to show their independence, it is nice to have your friends support you but recruiters are interested in you as an individual so try to avoid going in groups
  We provide your university’s careers team with a range of online material and posters so do look out for these!
  Do come and say hello to us when you are on campus as we would love to speak to you and discuss support for you!

Career consulting

If you are not sure what you want to do with your career and are confused get in touch with us to schedule an appointment over the phone to discuss where your degree can take you.

Research

  Every company has a “about us” section, make sure you read this before applying to them
  Know the companies CSR initiatives (Corporate Social Responsibility)
  Be commercially aware
  Know the Financial Health of the company
  Learn about the company culture, for example network with people at the firm via events (we host various events with several partner firms so be sure to register on our website to hear about these opportunities)
  Know about their competitors
  Do check how active they are on social media
  Latest news
  Most employers recruit a year in advance, so if you are looking for a graduate scheme in 2019, you’re best of applying from Sept 2018!

The sky’s the limit

You are at the start of your career and you want to build up on your experience and “personal brand”. We at Hire STEM Women advice you to not limit your options. For example here a few things you should know:

Understand that every role you do will enable you to develop transferable skills, if you do not secure your ideal job, that’s okay! It is not the end of the world.

It is important to learn as much as you can and get involved in projects you enjoy. Do not set yourself to one role as if you do not get this, you will be disappointed and it will knock your confidence, we always encourage people to have three to four back up options.

Figure out, what’s important to you, do you want to work for a large organisation or a start-up or do you enjoy working independently or in a team? These are a lot of questions but they are important as they will allow you to build up your career strategy.

Plan for your future!

As a company which improves the lives of hundreds of millions of people globally with our medicines, vaccines and consumer products, we take pride in providing access to all – but we have an opportunity and obligation to do more to improve inclusion and diversity: for our people inside GSK; in the way we do business; and in the communities where we operate.

Avanade is the leading provider of innovative digital and cloud services, business solutions and design-led experiences on the Microsoft ecosystem. Avanade came to life in 2000 in the middle of the dot.com boom. Many companies started with high hopes and fizzled, but we’re still here. Perhaps it’s the strong support of our parent companies, Accenture and Microsoft, or maybe it’s because we have grown and learned as a team, looking out for each other, celebrating our differences and challenging each other to see where our passion and skills around digital innovation can take us.

Avanade is made up of 50,000 individuals. People who share a passion for technology, who push beyond their comfort zone and always bring an open mind and who really care about making a genuine human impact at work. We put them together to solve some complex challenges and bring to life possibilities for our clients around the world.

Our purpose is to make a genuine human impact and doing so starts with creating a company that welcomes every individual and harnesses the unique perspectives they bring with them every day. We celebrate the diversity of our teams and Avanade is a place where everyone can be themselves and are empowered to do their best work.

Diversity information:

At Avanade, Inclusion & Diversity is part of everything we do, from the way we treat people to how we make decisions, to the solutions we take to market. We believe it’s a discipline that must be practiced with vigilance every day.

Avanade has pursued a deliberate and purpose-driven strategy around Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) since our founding in 2000. It started with our focus on a challenge that we face: the lack of women in the technology industry. To address that, we had to go to the root of the problem, which was attracting girls and young women to STEM, offering scholarships and creating programs. But Inclusion & Diversity is not limited to one group of people or one challenge. Inclusion is everyone, everything, every day. It’s the rising tide that lifts all boats. If our inclusive culture doesn’t consider all races, gender identities, ethnicities, sexual orientations, disabilities, ages, religions – all people and all phases of life – it falls short.

In 2019, Pam Maynard became not only Avanade’s first woman CEO, but the first CEO who is a woman of colour. She is passionate about building on the I&D foundation Avanade had already established with a comprehensive strategy that involves every person at Avanade. In 2020, Hallam Sargeant joined Avanade as our first Chief Inclusion & Diversity Officer to help accelerate this vision.

Inclusion: ensuring all individuals feel respected, heard, and that they can do their best work

Diversity: ensuring our workforce demographics reflect our clients and communities

Belonging: ensuring that everyone can be their authentic selves at work and that they feel welcomed and valued

To prioritise these concepts, we must invest in tangible, positive actions: create an inclusive culture, activate allyship, increase representation, accelerate development, communicate with transparency and amplify employee networks.

Arup is the creative force at the heart of many of the world’s most prominent projects in the built environment and across industry. We offer a broad range of professional services that combine to make a real difference to our clients and the communities in which we work. We are truly global. We have worked in more than 145 countries serving more than 7,000 clients. Our 16,000+ planners, designers, engineers and consultants deliver innovative projects across the world with creativity and passion. Founded in 1946 with an enduring set of values, our unique trust ownership fosters a distinctive culture and an intellectual independence that encourages collaborative working. This is reflected in everything we do, allowing us to develop meaningful ideas, help shape agendas and deliver results that frequently surpass the expectations of our clients. The people at Arup are driven to find a better way and to deliver better solutions.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is part of our DNA and we continually review our strategies and evolve our practices to redefine what diversity and inclusion means to our people and how we embed it as ‘business as usual’ across our firm.  

We aspire to be – and work hard to be – an organisation which recruits, retains and develops a truly diverse workforce reflective of the communities we serve and the kind of place where people are proud to work.

We provided workshops on challenging inappropriate behaviour to equip people with the tools and confidence to address some of the issues highlighted in the Inclusion Diary Room. Look for upcoming sessions in Moodle or speak to your Office Leader. 

​We celebrated National Inclusion week by showcasing excellence in EDI on our project work. 

We achieved Bronze status in the National Inclusion Standard.

We are Newton.  

We’re a team of the brightest and most curious minds with a fundamental belief that every organisation can be better. 

We crack some of the toughest business and public sector challenges of the day. Not with reports or copy and paste thinking. But by pinpointing and implementing the changes that will make the biggest difference – and then guaranteeing our fees against delivering measurable results. 
 
We never start out assuming we know the answer, but we’re always certain we’ll find it and see it through to the finish. By uncovering the data that means the most important decisions are made with facts, not opinions. By bringing together people who live and breathe delivering results. And by embedding in client organisations this same passion, self-belief and know-how to thrive on any challenge in the future. 

Diversity Information:

Newton has multiple networks for both allies and members of the group in question. These include the Wom-N network, the Disability Network, N-Pride and the Ethnicity Network. In turn, the networks run various events. For example, we have had a Gender Month (involving feminist speakers such as Sara Sandford, discussions of masculinity from David Brockway, and a book club focusing on Criado Perez’s Invisible Women). A Black History Month, including a Black Voices Panel session is occurring over October. Newton regularly runs Lunch and Learn discussion groups, to allow employees to learn from the perspectives of others – a recent Lunch and Learn about transgender perspectives was attended by over 100 employees.

Diversity and Inclusion

We are an award-winning consultancy that’s committed to closing the digital skills gap and making data, AI, and technology accessible for all. We do this by hiring graduates and junior professionals without any relevant skills or experience in data, AI, or technology, and paying them to train over 15 weeks. Once trained, our consultants are assigned to leading UK clients for a period of two years where they apply the skills acquired to real-world projects.

Our mission is to develop a diverse workforce for the technology industry and make Kubrick a place for everyone, regardless of gender identity, ethnicity or nationality, disability, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, or age. We strive to build a workforce that is representative of the society we operate in. We look to consider diversity in everything we do, and have implemented some more specific initiatives:

Our network of Diversity Champions brings their passion for inclusion into Kubrick by acting as ambassadors to educate and support colleagues, as well as advocate for positive change.

Our consultants all have dedicated success managers providing them with the help and support they need, both during their training, and while deployed onto our client sites.

We help amplify the voices of underrepresented groups in our industry through a variety of initiatives which include podcasts and live events.

We have developed partnerships with organisations such as Young Data Minds and Women in Data to help improve diversity in the industry.

We have started supporting young people to develop an awareness of careers in tech through outreach events in schools.

We are proud sponsors of social mobility charity Shadow to Shine and are working closely with them on a variety of initiatives to increase diversity in technology.

And we are continuously looking for more new ways in which Kubrick can play a leading part in improving diversity in tech, and support everyone to fulfil their potential.

About
Jane Street works differently. We are a quantitative trading firm active on more than 200 trading venues across 45 countries. As a liquidity provider and market maker, we help form the backbone of global markets. Our approach is rooted in technology and rigorous quantitative analysis, but our success is driven by our people.

Our bright, beautiful offices in the heart of New York, London, Hong Kong, and Amsterdam are open and buzzing with conversation. We come from many backgrounds and encourage travel between offices to share perspectives. Some of our best ideas come from bumping into a colleague at the office coffee bar.

Markets move fast. Staying competitive as we’ve grown has required constant invention—of new trading strategies, technology, and processes. We’ve found this is easier when you hire humble, kind people. They tend to help each other, and prioritize teamwork over titles.

We invest heavily in teaching and training. There’s a library and a classroom in every office, because deepening your understanding of something is considered real work. Guest lectures, classes, and conferences round out the intellectual exchanges that happen every day.

People grow into long careers at Jane Street because there are always new and interesting problems to solve, systems to build, and theories to test. More than twenty years after our founding, it still feels like we’re just getting started.

Diversity information:
Culture
Work at Jane Street is exciting and challenging. We trade in incredibly competitive, fast-paced environments, and feedback on successes and failures is quick and tangible. This allows for constant evaluation and improvement of our strategies and performance.

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.
