Young Rail Professionals – Annual Dinner 2018
Once a year, the Young Rail Professionals (YRP) host a black-tie event that brings together over 500 professionals to celebrate the many talents and achievements of those in the industry.
For Ford & Stanley, attending the YRP Annual Dinner is a must.
This year was Ford & Stanley’s 5th year attending the YRP Annual Dinner and once again, it did not disappoint. It’s no surprise that tickets sold out this year, as guests were treated to an exquisite three course meal, great live music and a venue that created a buzzing atmosphere. To top it off, we were able to hear from Keynote Speaker, John Smith, Managing Director and founder of GB Railfreight.
It was great to see so many young professionals coming together and celebrating success. The event attracted a varied and eclectic bunch of individuals to The Roundhouse in Derby – a spectacular venue to host the annual dinner.
This event is an ideal opportunity for us to catch up with our friends in the industry, whilst also building new relationships across a variety of organisations. This is one of our favourite parts of networking events – after all, we are ‘All About People’.
Catherine Huynh, Senior Recruitment Consultant, said of the event “As a consultant, a big part of your role is your ability to network and meet like-minded individuals within the industry. We are fortunate at Ford & Stanley to be able to attend events to ensure we are immersed within the rail culture and kept up-to-date with industry news. Who knows, you may have the added bonus of winning an Echo Dot just like our consultants Rory Peverell and Nick Nunn!”
Come and join our team.
Attending exciting networking events such as this is just one of the many benefits of being a Recruitment Consultant at Ford & Stanley. As you grow as an industry professional, so will your number of friends in the industry – making nights like this as enjoyable as they are beneficial to your career.
