From education to employment

The Next Normal Episode 5 – Building a Sustainable Future

Join Chris Webb (@WorldWebb) and Helen Armitage (@HelenArmitage16) from the Careers and Employability Service at Sheffield Hallam University (@SheffHallamUni) for another foray into the world of work, as told by Covid-19. 

This week, we welcome Philip Wilbourn, SHU Alumni and Chartered Environmental Surveyor, to the (virtual) booth, where we discuss the wide array of career pathways available within the Surveying sector, as well as the misconceptions around the work of Surveyors and how this ties in to the oft-quoted but sometimes misunderstood concept of Sustainable Development and the impact this may have in relation to the future of the Property industry.

The New Normal is back for Season 2 – new title, same topical content and even more fantastic guests!
