Challoner's Connected will give you access to a global digital network, rich with skills, experience and knowledge as well as the opportunity to keep in touch with DCGS and give something back to your community.

Helping You

The Challoner's Connected platform allows you to search for what you need, based on what other members of the community are able to offer - from careers advice to interview technique; from internships to reviewing your CVs. Or maybe you simply would like a chat to hear how someone has progressed their career over time.

The Directory tab offers a detailed search function using the questions you answered on registration. You can find other members by:

  • Their willingness to help
  • Current position
  • Industry or Company
  • Degree subject and leaving years

The Directory ensures that you only ever connect with those who have volunteered to help you with what you need.

You can:

  • Send a message to another user who is willing to help via their profile page on the Directory
  • Use the Updates tab to as for specific support. Maybe you are working on a project and after some independent advice, or you are going on a work placement overseas and looking for some local knowledge
