Our OJ Mentors

June's OJs of the Month

OJ of the Month is an initiative that allows us to recognise our interesting, exciting and inspirational alumni. And who better to feature this month than our Mentoring group who gave up their time last week to attend our first Young OJ Networking event in London, with the aim of creating a supportive network to enable younger OJs to progress in their career of choice as well as sharing their vast knowledge and expertise.
