Under the aegis of the OO Club, the Society holds “Drinks and Links” to provide informal networking opportunities to Old Oundelians. Each evening event focuses on a particular industry, such as recruitment, law or property, and can extend to any profession for which there is demand and a willing coordinator.  See the Events page for upcoming dates or contact us for further details.

Advice for Oundle Pupils

The Careers Department works with the Oundle Society by drawing on our vast and diverse resource network to provide pupils with the opportunity to attend work experience placements and seek careers advice from professionals.

Work experience placements give pupils an invaluable insight into potential future careers. In the current highly competitive market, both for university places and employment, work experience is vital, and provides an opportunity to develop skills and apply academic learning beyond the classroom. Work experience placements are a prerequisite for a number of degree courses and are increasingly being referred to at interview and on UCAS personal statements.

We should be delighted to hear if you or your organisation are prepared to:

  1. Offer work experience placements (anything from one day to two weeks).
  2. Offer careers advice by telephone, e-mail or in person.
  3. Attend careers events at the School.

Any offers of help would be most gratefully received. Your details would be added to the Careers Department database and matched to individual pupils' enquiries.
