Hughes Hall Career Network


Have you recently graduated?

Looking for a new job?

Moved to a new area and need some advice?

Thinking about a career change?



Hughes Hall Career Network allows College members to support each other through their own professional advice and experience. Our career network does not rival what the University or other professional careers advisory services offer, but is an informal network intended to support what is already there.

We have alumni in Law, Education and Business who are able to give you advice and guidance should you need it. To benefit from our career network or to offer your help as a volunteer contact

As part of the Hughes Hall Career Network you can:

•    Read alumni career stories
•    Contact volunteers to ask specific questions
•    Use our directory to connect with people in your area or subject group
•    Join or start a discussion on our online forum


Hughes-Hub Podcast Series

As a member of the college we invite you to carry on learning with Hughes Hall through our new Hughes-Hub Series which features videos from our students, alumni and reserachers showcasing their work and research.


Hughes Hall Enterprise Society

The Hughes Hall Enterprise Society seeks to nourish the strong entrepreneurial spirit of Hughes. It is open to all Hughes alumni and students from any degree and background who are interested in establishing their own business. Hughes Hall has always had a particular strength in professional vocational subjects such as law, medicine and engineering and has more MBAs than any other College, making Hughes a great place to start an enterprise.

Our Alumni career network is working in partnership with the Enterprise Society to open up opportunities for our alums, so that they can benefit from the wide spectrum of talks and events on offer and for alumni to become involved in the Enterprise Society as volunteers.

Help Students Follow Their Entrepreneurial Dreams

Would you like to be influential in helping other Hughes Hall students be motivated to follow their Entrepreneurial dreams by sharing your story? 

Wearable devices that read aloud to the visually impaired, innovative materials for the laundry industry, a new model for affordable housing, a device that tracks whether patients take their medication correctly, and on-the-go charging for mobile devices were just a few of the business ideas entered into the 2016 Hughes Hall Enterprise Award.

The top three, voted by the membership, were offered mentoring and coaching to help them prepare for the grand final, where Vocalens, with its read-aloud device for the visually impaired that also has the potential to recognise faces, diagrams, mathematical formulae and foreign languages, proved irresistible to the judges.

We’re now looking for

  1. Potential mentors to help prepare the top three for the 2017 final.
  2. Speakers to come along and share their story, or discuss an area of interest linked with your business, with the Hughes Hall Enterprise Society’s members. We have 5 spare slots this year, where you could make a difference to up and coming Entrepreneurs.

If you’re interested in being a mentor or speaker, please contact Lorraine on or ring on +447714330600 to be part of our exciting team of speakers and mentors for the Enterprise Society.
