About Us

Hello, we're Bright

... and we're here to help people make the best career choices

We founded Bright Network in 2008 with a simple mission, to help the brightest students and graduates get ahead in their career.  

Our mission

Thinking about what to do with your career should be an exciting time.  Careers advice should be inspirational and thought-provoking, and events and networking should be informative, personable and insightful.  

We set about creating an innovative free platform to connect the best and brightest graduates with the world's leading employers and to provide accurate and refreshing advice.

Since our foundation

Six years later in 2014, we are lucky enough to have over 40,000 members and be partnered with over 250 leading employers. Our members have an average of 3As at A Level and our partner firms, the likes of Google, McKinsey, PwC, EY, Slaughter and May, Morgan Stanley, Lazard and Pentland Brands are some of the best employers in the world. 

Our approach

Every day, our mission is to help our members get the best possible advice and ensure our free support continues. Our members value the advice, support and connections we give them, whilst our partners value the ability to access the very best talent more efficiently and effectively. 

Through personal introductions, exclusive networking events, skills sessions and insightful advice, we support our members as they look to turn academic achievement into career success and fulfilment.

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. 

And that's why we hope to continue our work for many more years to come.
