Platform One - a community

Platform One is a community of people with common ground - it’s a friendly, welcoming online space and its members are more than happy to make new connections and offer support and advice. It is great tool for alumni, whether you’re looking for some additional industry tips to complement the advice already given to you by the Careers Service, or want to explore new fields and chat with people in jobs you’re interested in.
