Managing Director of Just Eat delivers an enterprising talk

Alumnus Graham Corfield met with students in the Enterprise Start Up Lab on 28 March to give a talk on working in the food and beverage industry.

Graham, who graduated in 1991 with a degree in Accounting and Financial Management, is the UK Managing Director of Just Eat, a popular online food-ordering platform.

He visited campus on Thursday to meet with students interested in enterprise, and particularly within the food and beverage industry.

He discussed his role as a Managing Director for the major company, his career journey, food industry trends and gave an insight into business models.

Graham was keen to share top career tips with students which included “not getting too comfortable in a role”. He encouraged students to be honest with colleagues and maintain integrity.

During his visit to campus, he also filmed an “On the Deckchair” video with the Students’ Union, discussing enterprise and his journey on camera to inspire more groups of students.

Thank you to Graham for volunteering. Find out how you could get involved.
