Raise the profile of your organisation directly with King’s and aid our students’ discovery of the breath of opportunities across government, policy, think tanks and within the public sector services.

Held on our King’s CareerConnect platform as part of our broader sector Focused Festival alongside workshops, panels and masterclasses, the event will form the flagship for promotion of your opportunities, direct discussion with students and highlighting your initiatives.

It's also a fantastic opportunity for students to focus their search, get to know your organisation and culture and action their plan by enhancing their understanding of your recruitment and assessment process.

Targeted at penultimate year students, finalists and postgraduates the event has also attracted a number of first years eager to explore the options available and build their networks. Attendees will expect to meet with representatives from human resources/graduate recruitment, alumni and business representatives.
