Help inspire the next generation of engineers, scientists, medics, coders, makers and thinkers

Careers Hive is a STEM careers event with a difference. We bring S1–3 students together with STEM professionals to try hands-on activities and share career experiences, highlighting the different opportunities and career pathways that can open up by choosing STEM subjects.

We are looking for enthusiastic, friendly volunteers currently working in any STEM field to share their experience with our young visitors.

We aim to showcase a broad spectrum of jobs and workplaces, so whether you’re an apprentice, machinist or a researcher, a coder, a site engineer or a lab helper we’re keen to get you involved.

We’re particularly interested in hearing from you if you got to where you are via non-traditional routes, or if you identify with a minority group underrepresented in the sector.
