Welcome to the Alumnae Careers Page

LEH Careers

A key goal of the Holles Connect portal is to facilitate professional networking between alumnae and to connect current students (particularly Sixth Formers) with former students for university and careers advice. In this section you can search for a potential careers mentor, browse inspiring alumnae careers stories and find about some of the activities organised by the LEH Careers Department.

Search for Mentors

Use these search boxes to find and message a potential HollesConnect mentor in an industry, function or location of interest to you. Your mentoring request could be for an email exchange, phone chat or coffee and could relate to university choice, work experience, career change, relocation, setting up a business or returning to work after mat leave. If you can’t find an immediate match try adjusting your search criteria or browse the featured mentors below.

Careers Events

Careers Evening

This is the Career Department’s flagship event held jointly with Hampton School in January and attracting more than 60 delegates, many of whom are ex-pupils or current parents, offering advice on a broad range of career paths. Recent speakers have included architects, barristers, civil servants, economists, fund managers, GPs, TV producers and scientists, with many blue-chip companies represented such as JPMorgan, Net-a-Porter and Unilever.

Higher Education Fair

Each year representatives from the top 30 UK universities visit LEH to talk informally to students about higher education options and offer advice on making a good application. The delegates are well informed and the girls enjoy researching the different institutions. The HE Fair aims to encourage students to prepare for university Open Days in the summer term.

American Uni Talks

We hold annual talks about the application process for American Universities, including advice on sports scholarships, financial aid and academic scholarships. We also collaborate with Hampton School to provide preparation courses for the ACT admissions tests. In addition to this our alumnae who are currently studying the USA return to answer questions for those considering American Universities.

Specialist Careers Event

This annual event provides an in-depth view of career paths of alumnae following a particular degree. The most recent event was a joint venture with the Music and Drama Departments for careers in the Creative Arts. This included an opera singer, multiple actors, casting directors and producers.
