Learning from Leaders in Birmingham

Miranda Gordon from NHS Supply Chain shared a panel with other leaders from various organisations. The session was attended by 51 young people, all keen to hear from leaders in their field about routes into different careers. The aim of the session is to give young people the opportunity to listen to the career journeys of a varied panel of leaders, gain an understanding of careers that may be available post City Year and have the opportunity to ask detailed questions.
