Careers Takeover 2022
Episode 6: Edwin Malins
On March 9, 2022 David Lipington from the Student Services Team hosted a very special careers themed takeover in honour of National Careers Week 2022.
Throughout the day David and colleagues in the Student Services Team interviewed various professionals around the routes into their careers, and discussed what the realities of the day-to-day roles are, and the types of skills required to perform it effectively. Some of the themes of this day were around wider careers related issues such as those effecting students who have English as a second language, care leavers, issues faced by women in the workplace, and how to manage your mental health and well-being whilst going through that all important job application process.
The green economy is one of the quickest growing sectors in the UK, with jobs ranging from STEM based roles in engineering to those working in green education via grassroots organisations on the rise. Careers Advisor David Lipington speaks to Head of Conservation at the Wildlife Trust Edwin Malins on why and how he ended up working in his role, and the various progression routes available to those thinking of working in the sector.
