Ones to Watch

Freshminds’ Ones To Watch programme is the UK’s only peer-nominated talent spotting scheme, established in 2000. Each year we receive applications from individuals whose excellence has been recognised by their peers and are tipped as being a future leader.

Individuals aren’t only academically gifted, but are also exceptionally talented in other areas. Star qualities include being commercially aware, self-starting and ambitious. We then shortlist and interview candidates from the UK’s leading Universities and the final 100 graduates are then able to enter into the network.

THE

ALUMNI

NETWORK

The scheme has been running since 2000 and there are now over 1,000 members in the network. A Ones to Watch can expect valuable opportunities such as alumni networking and thought leadership events.

We also run a big annual event to welcome the new intake which has been held at some great venues such as Amazon HQ, Innocent and the Mind Candy offices. We invite alumni members from the past 16 years that the scheme has been running, many of whom are now in high profile roles in companies such as Facebook and Google to working at The Cabinet Office or the BBC.

    Ones to Watch is a peer-nominated talent spotting scheme. Therefore, by nature, self-nominations cannot be accepted. If you are a 2018 graduate and you are interested in the scheme, then please direct a peer to the nomination section of this website where they can use the nominator choice from the drop down above. You can then use the link in the email we will send you to upload your CV. If you are applying via a current Ones to Watch ambassador then please complete this short application with your CV. Please only submit one application. In the occurrence of a duplicate, we will proceed with the information in the first submission unless otherwise stated.
