Volunteering

Imperial College Business School Careers need alumni support across a range of activities and initiatives. You can provide invaluable resources through offering placements, internships or consultancy projects for students.

You can also volunteer to be part of alumni panels or speak at Careers events organised by the team. Or provide job opportunities to students and encourage your organisations to hire our graduates.

Register your interest to support Imperial College Business School Careers.

Students have many opportunities throughout the academic year to network with alumni. These events include alumni-student networking socials organised by student-led Career Clubs, alumni panels during student inductions, special programme competitions that require alumni judges or campus-based recruitment and information sessions for prospective students.

You can support students by offering to share your expertise at speaking opportunities or attend networking events.

More than 9,000 Business School alumni live or work in the UK and we are always keen to develop more opportunities for our diverse community to come together. You can support our efforts by organising your class reunion or engaging with the alumni-led Professional Interest Networks.

You can also offer your company’s premises for events to allow us to host alumni gatherings off-campus.

Our Alumni Relations team maintains a strong online presence and offers interesting content to our alumni through Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, our monthly alumni e-bulletin, Alumni Insights, and website. We encourage you to like, share and engage with our social media channels online to help increase the reach of information to the alumni community.

We need you to help us highlight the success of our alumni community through alumni profiles and case studies that we use across the School’s various communication channels.  Share your success, or the success of your former classmates. We are also interested in hearing from alumni with a talent for blog writing and you can see examples of what your fellow alumni have written.

One of the easiest ways you can offer your support is to connect with prospective students, offer holders, current students or fellow alumni via email.  You might answer questions about career development, share your specific industry experience or be asked to offer insights on studying at the Business School. Students particularly find this connection useful when preparing for job interviews or applying for graduate programmes at major companies.

The encounters give me plenty of food for thought and make me a more interesting and in touch professional.

I absolutely loved my time at Imperial, and so I was keen to maintain an active link with the school. I think the Business School has a great offering and I’d love to help champion the brand
