Aberdeen, UK, 27th July, 2016: Aberdeen Young Professionals (AYP), the local talent network for young professionals working in and around the city, has partnered with Aspectus, the specialist communications agency, to engage the next generation of energy and business professionals.

Aspectus – which recently opened its Aberdeen office to service its growing oil and gas client base – will raise awareness of AYP’s discussion and networking events using its unique approach combining content, media and search.

Ross Jolly, founder of AYP, says: “We partnered with Aspectus because of their innovative approach and specialist sector knowledge. Their culture is about empowering young, talented individuals and we couldn’t think of a better company to passionately communicate our vision.”

AYP was established in 2009 to create a platform for young professionals in the early stages of their career to meet useful contacts in a relaxed and sociable environment. The group – which currently boasts over 5,000 members – holds regular events which offer a unique opportunity to discuss industry issues with senior figures and network with other like-minded individuals.

Laura Iley, head of energy, oil and gas at Aspectus, comments: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with AYP. These are challenging times for the city and particularly the oil and gas industry. Having personally been part of and benefited from AYP events in the past, I’m delighted to work with Ross to maximise engagement around this important network and reach as many young professionals as possible.

AYP recently launched its first mentor scheme, which is providing young professionals with the opportunity to be coached by local business leaders. The mentors from companies including EC-OG, Ledingham Chalmers and Nexen, are offering their time to provide invaluable career advice to young talent in Aberdeen.
