We started Bright Network in 2013 with a simple mission, to create a free to join innovative network of the brightest students and connect them with the best career opportunities.
With a focus on quality, our network has grown and we now have 120,000+ 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.
- 85% of our membership is state-educated
- 57% female
- 39% BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic)
- 14% of our members have received free school meals
- 40% are the first generation to go to university.

Now it's 2017 and we're delighted to now partner with over 300 leading employers including McKinsey & Company, Goldman Sachs, Bain & Company, KPMG, Deloitte, Slaughter and May, Morgan Stanley, Berenberg, Dyson, BrewDog, Teach First, Deliveroo 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 our partner organisations find thousands of their graduate hires over the eight years since we launched Bright Network, we know our approach works.
We're delighted to partner with leading organisations and charities in their quest to find remarkable people. This year, we're proud to be an official supporter of Teach First, the remarkable charity committed to fighting educational inequality.
We're also thrilled to be working with the New Entrepreneurs Foundation once again as they seek out to transform UK business by developing the entrepreneurial leaders of the future.
This year, we are partnering with the National Mentoring Consortium (NMC) too - a unique organisation that pairs ethnic minority, disabled or dyslexic undergraduates with business professionals as part of a structured mentorship programme.
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. Want to join the Bright Network team? We're hiring across all business areas - join us.
