Launching WEDNESDAY 27th JANUARY 2010 at GUANABARA bar in LONDON

ESCAPE THE CITY provides exciting options for YOUNG PROFESSIONALS who want to leave their mainstream corporate jobs and ‘do something different’

Escape the City, ‘Esc’ for short, is launching with a party at GUANABARA, HOLBORN, in CENTRAL LONDON on WEDNESDAY 27TH JANUARY 2010.  The evening will consist of inspirational talks from AL HUMPHREYS (Adventurer and Writer who cycled around the world on his student loans) and BEN KEENE (Social Entrepreneur, Founder of Tribewanted) and a gig from THE CORRESPONDENTS (one of London’s hottest new live music acts).

Esc was started by two EX-MANAGEMENT CONSULTANTS, DOM JACKMAN (27) and ROB SYMINGTON (26), who are convinced that there is more to life than working in a job that doesn’t make you leap out of bed in the morning.  They are building this platform because they believe that thousands of young city workers feel exactly the same.

Esc is aimed at ambitious, talented young people who aren’t catered to by traditional job sites and recruitment services.  Esc’s goal is to connect them with exciting, innovative, non-mainstream organisations where they can use their skills to make a difference, have an impact, and be genuinely fulfilled by their work.
