welcome to career nuggets

We are the Premiere Networking and Support hub for Career Professionals from the Black & Ethnic Minority (BME) community in the United Kingdom..

About Us

Career Nuggets was created to inform, educate and inspire people to take their career to the next level. It was set up by Morenike Ajayi as an information hub for BME (Black Minority Ethnic) individuals, who want to advance in their chosen careers. 

The vision is to provide knowledge through workshops, events, advice and information via various media.

I am a senior finance executive and a broadcaster. My passion is helping people within the black community to advance and excel in their chosen careers.

I am the founder of Career Nuggets and producer of Career Nuggets TV, a TV program where I share useful tips on career development and progression. I firmly believe that many of us have the potential to advance in our careers and with the right nurturing and mentoring we can be bold enough to reach out for the right opportunities.

Career Nuggets is a social enterprise created with the aim to bridge the career progression gap in the BME community in the UK.

We provide knowledge, nurturing and opportunities for networking and mentoring via in-person and virtual events designed to educate and inspire.

Accelerate is an intensive career coaching and mentoring programme guaranteed to accelerate your career progress and take you from striving to thriving even if you have been stuck in the same position for longer than you can remember.

This is a business and career discussion program, where seasoned professionals who are making strides in their careers, discuss relevant topics that impact on career progression. They offer useful insight, expert advice and relevant resources.

Here are just a few recent testimonials from individuals that have benefitted from being part of the career nuggets community.

Computer Science

When I joined the career nuggets mentorship programme a lot changed in my career – I understood the power of networking and leveraged on that, I was challenged to be more confident and determined in achieving  my goals. I have met some fantastic people through Career Nuggets. In the programme, i have had the opportunity to listen to other mentors, role play, volunteer, network and eat! These have helped me in addition to my faith get me where I am in my career. Within 4 years (2 of which I was on maternity) I have earned £15k more than I did 4 years ago and that’s just to put a bit of perspective to the growth I have seen working with Sis Morenike and Career Nuggets team.

Here are my thoughts…
