The BBC has always prided itself as an educator, and an important part of the BBC website are its careers pages.
This includes a really useful section that aims to help young people determine a suitable career path with guidance on the subject options to study in order to follow their dream career. But not everyone knows what they want to do, so the section is also divided up into articles that highlight jobs that use skills that young people might favour to use in their career choice, such as jobs with music, jobs that use geography, or jobs that use science. It also provides interview advice, soft skills guidance and highlights alternative options such as freelancing or being self-employed.
The idea is to help young people who may be deciding what to study, taking exams, planning a career, or just curious. The Bitesize Careers section is intended to help explain the world of work, with advice from people who’ve found the right path for them.
At RammSanderson, we are really proud that one of our graduate ecologists, Gabrielle Cruttenden, who is now an assistant ecologist, was interviewed to explain her journey into a career that she now really loves with a passion.
In her interview, Gabrielle explains the study choices she made at school and university and how important she found her volunteering work, training courses and experiences whilst travelling in Borneo for shaping her decisions.
Gabrielle went on to take a degree in Zoology and once she had finally decided that she wanted to conserve animals, she joined Ramm Sanderson and has since been doing an online master’s degree in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health.
