A Life in Public Service

Tuesday, 13 December, 2016 -- Helen Wilson

New to the careers forum carousel for 2016, was Public Service and Administration.  We were delighted to welcome back three OEs, Matt Costello (2009), Rebecca Ross (2005) and Charlie Baker (1985) who were joined on the panel by current parents Andrea McMahon and Susan Caldwell.

The panel covered a broad spectrum of roles and responsibilities, and all were great advocates for working within the Civil Service and Police Force.  Each of the panel spoke about what their current role entails, their career path to date and advice to the students on recruitment policies and procedures. 

Matt is an Assistant Economist with the Department of Work and Pensions, Rebecca is currently a Private Secretary to the Minister for Universities and Science, and Charlie is a Metropolitan Police Office specialising in road traffic forensics (and is very much looking forward to his retirement next year after completing 30-years of service!)  Pictured are Charlie, Matt and Rebecca.

Thank you to all our speakers for such an informative and interesting evening, it was great to meet with them all back at Eltham College.

The next careers forum will be held at 7.30pm on Tuesday 24 January and will focus on Engineering and Technology.  This is always a very popular choice of career at Eltham College and we generally have a really good turnout at this forum.  If you would like to join the panel for this forum, please contact Helen.
