With the current restrictions, many of our Careers events, such as our S5 Careers Lunches, cannot currently take place. We need your help to build up a bank of digital resources that the pupils can access via an ESMS intranet to help them to learn about different careers and start to form their own ideas about their future.
We would like to ask for your help with this. Can you please fill in our form with questions about your career here. In addition to filling in the form, it would be enormously appreciated if you could also:
- Send a photo of yourself (details are on the form). We find this helps pupils to connect the answers with a real person and aids their understanding of the context of your replies.
- Send a 5 minute video (again, details are on the form), mp4 format preferred, introducing yourself and explaining/showing, for example ‘a typical day in my working life’, or possibly discussing your career path. This could also be in the form of a PowerPoint or word document if you were unable to record something. Again, we find this helps the pupils to engage better with the answers you provide and can be quicker and easier than filling in the form.
- We may contact you after you’ve answered questions to find out more or clarify matters. Please ensure to include your contact details if you’re happy for us to do this.
We’ve been working on developing these resources in recent months and the pupils tell us that they really help support them in developing their thinking about their future careers.
Thank you so much for your support!

Hi! I am a 3rd year medical student at University of St Andrews who would be happy to speak to pupils about a career in medicine and what it is like studying, particularly how this has changed during covid and is likely to be for a significant period of time.
Hi Emily, thanks for getting in touch and for your kind offer. I’ve passed your comment and contact details onto Mrs Hemmati who is currently Head of Careers at Mary Erskine and have asked her to get in touch with you directly. Kind regards
