We're Bright Network
And we're here to help you make the best career choices.
We founded Bright Network in 2008 with a simple mission, to create a free-to-join innovative network of the brightest students and connect them with the best career opportunities.
From just one event with 100 students in 2009, our network has grown to 100,000+ members, all of whom are studying at, or graduates from top universities.
Everything we do for our members is free and diversity is critical to our mission in helping the brightest get ahead in their careers. 68% of our membership is state-educated, 55% female and 48% BAME (Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic). 14% of our members have received free school meals and 38% are the first generation to go to university. Find out more about our membership criteria and commitment to diversity just here.
Now it's 2016 and we're delighted to partner with over 300 leading employers including McKinsey & Company, Deutsche Bank, Bain and Company, PwC, EY, Slaughter and May, Morgan Stanley, BCG, Dyson, Diageo, Vodafone, Lazard and HSBC.
Through our unique blend of innovative events, insightful and rich content and personalised advice, we're here to make the whole world of careers and connections work better and brighter.
Having helped thousands of our members find roles over the seven years since we launched Bright Network, we know our approach works.
We hope that Bright Network continues to inspire our members to think big when it comes to their careers. After all, if you're going to spend the next 100,000 hours of your life working, you deserve to do something great.
