Serbian City Club is a not-for-profit apolitical organisation established to promote the interests of Serbian professionals in the UK and in Serbia. Our aim is to provide a networking platform for the professionals in the City of London and those who have returned to Serbia.
Serbian City Club was founded in the late 1990’s by a handful of enthusiastic Serbs working in London’s financial institutions. Their idea was to bring to life an informal club that would gather young Serbian professionals who live and work in the UK. Since 2004, our membership base has increased steadily and today the Club is more than 2000 strong.
Our members are mainly London-based and work in all walks of professional life as scientists, doctors, bankers, engineers, lecturers, civil servants, etc. in renowned British and global institutions. The typical Club member is characterized by a high level of education and cultural awareness which tied with their linguistic skills ensures their seamless integration into the British society. Whilst retaining strong links with their families and friends in Serbia, with a view of transferring their knowledge, skills and experience, they strengthen Serbia’s European identity and its key role in the Balkans.
With this in mind, our main project is one of ‘brain drain reversal’ through which we are enabling Serbian professionals to return to Serbia. We provide professional CV guidance and we aim to match the needs of the employers in Serbia with the potential candidates in our database in the UK and around the world. Finally, we also offer specialised advocacy services on a variety of issues relating to our members.
The Club regularly organizes networking events in London and in Belgrade thus enabling continued contact amongst the existing members and an opportunity to welcome new ones.
