Banking & Financial Services Networking Night 2024

Bush House, Strand Campus, London

This information is for employers - students can book via King's CareerConnect

To request a space, click on the red button to be taken to our booking form on King's CareerConnect. You will need to register with us if you do not already have an organisation account.

We welcome bookings from representatives from the following areas of banking and financial services, though attendees representing your organsiation MUST be individuals working in the business function who can share their personal reflections on their role alongside the organisation, culture and sector trends.

This event is open to organisations representing the following sectors:

Investment Banking Corporate & Private Banking Retail Banking
Insurance & Brokerage Wealth & Investment Management Private Equity
Hedge Funds Financial Advisory Credit Companies
Ratings Agencies Pension Funds Financial Technology


Our new Banking & Financial Services Networking Night is designed to equip our engaged students with critical information on the breadth of business areas, build their networks and help determine which area of the professions best aligns with their knowledge, skills and attributes.

We want to showcase the true breadth of opportunities across the sector - and within each organisation, from asset management to M&A, reinsurance to capital markets. To achieve this, each organisation is asked to send at least three representatives undertaking different roles within their firm who can engage our students, share their own experiences and equip them with the latest commercial awareness on that business line.

Your nominated representatives will be provided with:

  • a space to position a single pull-up banner stand
  • name badges
  • a space to showcase a poster with QR codes linking to your recruitment website
  • light refreshments, snacks and soft drinks

This event is targeted at students in the Focus stage of their career thinking, with existing ideas about the roles or area of financial services they are looking for internships or graduate roles but will also see students exploring financial services for the first time.

Why should I attend this event?

  1. It's FREE to attend compared to our main careers fair which has a cost incurred.
  2. Engage a student cohort with an existing clear thinking about their career direction - many attendees will have already made a clear choice these sectors are their future aspiration, or commenced applications and will be looking to meet business representatives and ask questions about day-to-day life in your firm.
  3. Directly engage your King's alumni and other business representatives in sharing their great experiences of your organisation culture, business projects and opportunities.
  4. Maximise your brand and attraction at King's by spreading the resource allocation of your Graduate Recruitment or HR teams by engaging other business representatives on your behalf.


  • Standard package: FREE for up to 3 nominated business representatives per organisation

Completion of a booking request does not guarantee attendance - please review our Disclaimer. Cancellation and non-attendances charge of £100 + VAT applies. Please see our Terms & Conditions


Whilst we hope representatives will be briefed on the basic recruitment opportunities available in their respective firm, this event is not designed for graduate recruiters or HR teams. If you are keen to raise the profile of your organisation and engage with a wider range of students, our King's Careers Fair provides opportunity to hold a traditional stand.
