Alternative Career Choices: A Talk by Ranulph Tees


We were delighted to welcome back (albeit virtually!) Ranulph Tees (MO 2008-13) to deliver a King's Talk on alternative career choices.

Ranulph left King’s dead-set on becoming a journalist. During a gap-year he interned at The Economist newspaper and Insight TWI, producing documentaries for Al Jazeera and Channel 4. After reading Economics at UCL, he then worked in Investment Banking at JPMorgan. Realising this was also not the career for him, he took an MSc at Oxford alongside teaching at an independent school, before finally deciding to set up his own business.

Three years on and his tutoring agency, Cavendish Milton, now works with over 40 tutors delivering thousands of hours of tutoring each year.

In this talk, Ranulph shares the advice that he was given from leading mentors in the fields of journalism, finance and education. He also highlights the challenges he’s faced (from 100 refutations from investment banks to a failed business venture), the pitfalls and potentials to consider when making career choices, and what he wishes he’d have known aged 18.
