You are graduating soon … now what? Many of you will be looking for that first job, possibly finding out about internships or maybe looking to start your own business. There are so many decisions to be made, questions to be answered that it can be a daunting time.

Whether you are looking for a future in the digital, science, energy, food, drink or tourism sectors, the Aberdeen city region has exciting prospects for you.

Come along to Vanguard: The Next Step to find out more about the opportunities available for you in Aberdeen. Hear from our speakers who will talk about the North-east and how it is a region filled with vibrancy and passion, with a bright future ahead of it.

AND we will include food and drinks for you to enjoy. So what are you waiting for?

(Please note that due to alcohol being served this event is strictly open to over 18’s only)

About the Vanguard project

The Vanguard initiative traces back to a piece of research in 2017 which revealed that three quarters of young professionals in the area felt disenfranchised and uninvolved in the future of the region. We created a platform to get them involved in real economic challenges, tasking them with coming up with fresh ideas across a wide range of topics.

Vanguard aims to have a direct positive impact on Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire, building on the momentum created by the city region deal and a range of public and private sector investment projects valued in excess of £8bn which are either planned or already underway in the area.

One of the initiatives has been to provide a strong regional narrative - looking at work being undertaken to talk up the North-east, encompassing talent attraction and retention; cultural ambitions and making our city region a cosmopolitan destination.

We are transitioning into a renaissance region as we witness a series of transformational projects and investments across the area. It’s time to be proud of our region, challenging norms and inspiring bold, new ways of thinking in order to write the next chapter in the success story of the North-east.
