christos orthodoxou

Founder

Chris is a driven and passionate founder. After spending time in industry, he discovered a real need for students to connect with employers and vice verse. He has immersed himself in recruitment industry, both directly and through associations and events, in order to learn how they work, future plans and the market in general. Chris has an extensive background in industry - with previous experience at National Grid, the BBC, Pepsi and more recently, Aston Business School, within the business partnerships. He has also published a book alongside his university. 

MARION SMITH 

SCHOOLS RELATIONSHIP MANAGER

Marion has worked in secondary education for more years than she cares to admit to - for many as a classroom teacher and tutor, then for the last 13 as a Careers Coordinator. This experience of how schools work, what they are seeking to provide for students and what would meet those needs is something that she hopes to bring to the Class Careers team.

CLAIRE ROUNDING

operations manager 

Claire joined Class Careers in March 2017, via a slightly varied career path. Perhaps if online careers support existed in her schooling days, she might have made a few better decisions and got to Class Careers sooner than 2017! That said, no regrets, she's built a strong background and understanding of young people through working at The Prince's Trust, and comes with a passion for ensuring young people know what's out there for them to embrace.   

Tom Kilbey

Volunteer

Tom is a full time employee of Lloyds Banking Group. Having taken part in the delivery of an online workshop, he wanted to further his involvement with Class Careers and now volunteers with us as an Operations Assistant. 

SPENCER MEHLMAN

ADVISOR

As the founder of the UK's leading website for school and college leavers, NotGoingToUni, we're delighted to have Spencer on board the Class Careers team... even if it is for just one day a week!
