Newnham Associates are an elected group of 60 Newnham alumnae, representing all subjects, broad life experiences, and most career routes and industry sectors. 

Current Newnham students and recent graduates are welcome to contact any Associate for help or advice. 

There is a contact form under each person's profile here, which will send an email directly to that individual Associate.

Do click through to LinkedIn profiles wherever they are available - there's often a lot more information there.

Rachel Hirst

My first degree was Geography, my MSc was in Ecology and Environmental Sciences and my PhD was in Applied Ecology.

I have a wide range of experience, from academic research through to commercial consultancy, and was amongst the first Chartered Ecologists in the UK. The environmental sector is a growing area of employment for graduates.

As a Director of AEL, based in Scotland, I deal with our recruitment, as well as mentoring women across the UK during their pathway to Chartership.  I am more than prepared to be approached for career advice or support.
