OV shares his King’s Careers Story

It was lovely to see one of our OVs featuring in the latest round of exciting King’s departmental videos. OV Toby Platt (K 12-19) features in the careers video where he talks about how the Careers Department helped him after he decided full-time university was the not the route he wished to pursue. He discovered that he had an interest in the property industry and was able to meet with OV Keith Carnegie (H 86-88), who sits on the board at Vistry, during Keith’s visit to King’s School as part of his Barnabas Day in 2019. Six months later and, following an intensive application process with the company, Toby was offered a permanent and full-time role at Vistry. In the video Toby encourages current and prospective pupils to make the most of the opportunities that the Careers Department and the OV network offers at King’s.

The Development and Alumni Relations team work closely with the Careers Department, as Head of Careers, Helen Airdrie explains in the video so that the OV community can share their wealth of insights and experience with the next generation of OVs. We were delighted to spot OV Edward Cumming QC (Br 90-01) in the video too, during his recent visit to King’s as our latest Barnabas Speaker.  Please click here to watch the video in full.

We are very grateful to OVs who are so generous in giving their time to help with careers events for King’s School students. If you would be interested in getting involved with careers at King’s please do let us know at
