The opportunity to apply to SCC's Mentorship Programme
The SCC Mentorship Programme aims to connect our Young Professionals to experienced senior professionals from the Chamber's network. Each year, a few selected members of the YP are provided with a personal and highly qualified and hand-picked Mentor and get to receive professional guidance for one year.
Access to our Guest List Service
As a YP Member, you get exclusive access to our Guest List Service which gives you the possibility to have your and your friends' names put on guest lists to a range of London’s most popular nightclubs, including Scotch, Maggie's, Tonteria and The Roof Gardens to name a few.
Access to the Job Board
If you are looking for a new job, our Career Opportunities site list job vacancies from companies within and outside the Chamber network that are specifically looking for individuals with a big network. All YP Members are notified when new job vacancies are posted, and the job ads span from restaurants and events management to consulting and banking and everything in between. Regardless if you're interested in consulting, media or banking, being a YP Member is attractive to employers, as it is a means for developing your professional network.
