Daniel Jeffery, Business Management
Daniels’ start up business ‘Concilium Search’ has shot to success after he and 8 others set it up shortly after graduation. His now £19m business has clients all around the world, with a team of 80 employees and international offices in New York and Amsterdam.
“Being part of a fast-growing start-up means that no two days are the same. The variety in my Business Management course at University of Gloucestershire gave me a fantastic grounding to be able to tackle new challenges as they arose within my company.
I had initially wanted to join a larger multinational, but subsequently decided that a smaller company would be a better fit following several discussions with my lecturers. I love the pace and unpredictability that comes from being part of a start-up, and can endorse working for smaller organisations to anyone. Had I not come to that realisation and not been as comfortable taking calculated risks, I would likely not be where I am today.
The networks developed throughout university will serve you for the rest of your career, so try to engage with peers and lecturers as much as possible whilst you’re at university.”
