The below information is for employers.

Please click on the red button to book via King's College London.

Raise the profile of your organisation directly with King’s, Imperial & UCL with our collaborative Life & Health Science Careers Event which, at King's, will run 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 within Health, the pharmaceutical industry and bioscience related fields.

The event will be held in parallel with each institution, but you only need to build your stand once and this will be replicated across different instances. We would encourage you to add your social media and website to your stand.

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.

The event will run from 10:00 to 16:00, allowing access for any students studying remotely to the East or West. We do not expect you to be online for the whole time and would suggest you try to be online for at least two hours between those times. Once booked you will be able to update your stand and make clear to students when you will be available.

 

Please see our guide for building your stand in King's CareerConnect. We will be producing an online brochure for students to help them navigate the event.  If you are interested in having an advert in the brochure, please select this option when booking and we will be in touch for further information.
