The fabled English city of Nottingham is well-known throughout history and in literature. Home to the legendary local hero Robin Hood and his merry band. Nottingham is also known for its football club, certain specialist hobby games, and for housing the world’s smallest cinema. The city is also home to one of the UK’s best educational establishments, Nottingham Business School (NBS).
This is a video recording of the webinar hosted by Unimy & Beyond on June 25, 2019. Its speakers were Flavio Bishop Cabral (Unimy & Beyond); Chris Crabot, International College Manager, Nottingham Trent University; Liza Pybus, MSc Management Course Leader, NTU; Kate Robins, Careers Consultant, NBS; Hui Tran, Student Ambassador, NTU. The discussion focused on job opportunities in the UK, and networking events Nottingham Business School offers.
Job opportunities in the UK
Living and working in the UK offers many networking opportunities, explains Flavio Bishop Cabral, who studied and worked in London. The network he forged there helped him build his career, and introduced him to people from all walks of life. The multiculturalism and diversity of the UK allowed Flavio to establish long-lasting connections with HR professionals from some of the biggest international companies. He believes this same exposure to diversity is what makes Nottingham Business School such a great place to start your Masters journey, and your future career.
