The OBM Club Network

THE OBM CLUB NETWORK

The OBM Club increasingly plays an important role in helping both OBMs and current students to access career advice and support. We run a regular programme of professional networking events and utilise the skills of our diverse and inspiring network. Whether it’s finding an internship, preparing for interviews or meeting experts in a particular field, the OBM network is here to help.

Please contact the External Relations team if you are looking for career support, can offer career guidance or can host a networking event.

OBM Club Professional Networking

Over the last couple of years we have run a number of successful events providing informal networking opportunities to OBMs. Each evening has focused on a particular industry which so far has included finance, pharmaceutical and charity sectors. There have been some fantastic outcomes from these events, with employment secured and internships organised. See the Events page for upcoming dates or if you wish to suggest a profession or act as a host please contact externalrelations@bedmod.co.uk.

"I've benefited greatly from the OBM network over the years, both professionally and socially, so was delighted to attend the finance networking event. Not only was it good to catch up with some old friends, but also nice to be of use to the current generation of recent leavers and graduates looking to get into our industry. Having spoken to a few OBMs I was happy to be in the position to offer work experience to Julie Rogers, showing her how we look after all manner of personal finance, including mortgages and investment/ pension planning.

"I'm really grateful for the OBM network and how it has connected me with alumni that have willingly helped me to form a much stronger perspective towards the career I would like to pursue. I've had work experience offers, and even met up with alumni who have offered me their advice. I'm now much more confident in what direction I want to go in with regards to my career.
