Lead sponsors for the 2020 Careers' Fayre

Posted by VN - Thursday 13 June 2019

Sir Thomas Rich’s are delighted to announce that Kirby & Knott Financial Planning will be lead sponsors for the 2019/2020 Careers' Fayre. This is a key part of the school’s support for students to engage with employers and Universities. The day will see numerous representatives covering an expansive array of career options, designed to allow students to understand the options available to them whilst giving them time to ask questions to experts in various professions.

Directors Alex and Rich have both had successful careers in large corporate organisations and now run their own business offering financial advice to individuals and business. Their wealth of experience can really help make a difference to our students.

Alex said “We are really excited to be supporting the school and the students in a crucial part of their education. Having been lucky in finding a profession that we both genuinely enjoy and get a great deal of pleasure from, we feel that a career should be built around doing what you love. Therefore, we are passionate about ensuring students are well equipped for the working world and understand all avenues that they can explore.”

This sponsorship opportunity is even more special as the Directors, Alex and Rich, are both Alumni of the school, having attended between 1994 and 2001. Rich explained “It has been great to have an opportunity to get back to the school and whilst there have been many physical changes, the culture and feel of the school remain. Sir Thomas Rich’s gave both of us a great start for our future and we hope that by supporting the students and the Careers' Fayre we can give something back.”

Kirby & Knott Financial Planning will also be supporting students throughout the year with some practical career planning sessions.
