Edinburgh Young Professionals (EYP) aims to encourage professional networking and relaxed socialising for the city’s motivated future leaders.
While older members of the business community have already established their network of contacts and regularly attend business functions, we recognised that there was nothing aimed at younger or more junior professionals at the beginning of their careers. Furthermore, we feel that it is imperative that each and every one of us is able to equip ourselves with a professional network that will be of assistance to us as we progress up the career ladder.
We aim to put on a number of social and professional networking events to give us all the opportunity to meet on a regular basis in a friendly environment. EYP was set up in 2009 by young professionals, for young professionals. It is entirely not for profit and where possible the funds raised through events are donated to charity. Today, EYP has over 2,000 members from hundreds of companies based in and around Edinburgh.
EYP is currently run by the EYP Board: Conor Forker, Jessica Randal, Michael Kent, Sarah Buchart, Jonathan Baird, Joanna Stewart, Kirsten Thomson and Caroline Whytock. You can find out more about us and EYP on our ‘About Us‘ page, or if you would like to join the team or run a one-off event – please contact us directly.
EYP is an open group for all young professionals wishing to join.
