We founded Bright Network in 2008 with a simple mission, to create an innovative network of the brightest graduates and connect them with leading employers and inspirational advice, to help them make the best possible career decisions.
Six years later in 2014, we are lucky enough to have over 40,000 members and be partnered with over 250 leading employers including Google, McKinsey, Deutsche Bank, PwC, EY, Slaughter and May, Morgan Stanley, Lazard and HSBC.
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.

All Bright Network members are graduates of Times Top 20 or Russell Group universities, or have at least AAB at A level or equivalent.
