DH LINKS offers networking connections for the whole School community. It acts as a focal point for current pupils and alumnae across the globe who want to share or receive invaluable careers-based knowledge, guidance and information. Many Downe House parents commit their personal and professional expertise which makes the programme an enviable resource.
Working closely with our alumnae and parent networks, DH LINKS is able to support girls and alumnae to make the most of work shadowing placements and internships both in the UK and globally.
Our alumnae community and close links with our parents also enable DH LINKS to run professional networking groups for girls, alumnae and parents across a range of professional sectors and interests.Discover
DH LINKS can help current girls and alumnae build their networks and expand their opportunities. There are many different ways in which our alumnae support each other professionally; through attending networking events, one -to-one mentoring or internships.
Through the Foundation Office, DH LINKS is in contact with over 3,000 former Downe House girls who are located all over the world. DH LINKS is actively seeking alumnae and parents who would be willing to assist current girls of any age or alumnae with careers advice and guidance.
