Happy New Year from King's Employer Engagement
Andrew Wright, Head of Employer Engagement
We wish all our employer, industry and alumni partners a very happy new year.
We hope you had a relaxing new year and are looking forward to the opportunities presented by the start of a new decade.
Here at King's, we're developing grand plans for providing even greater provision for employers, industry and alumni partners to engage with us during 2020, whether that is on campus, at your own offices or virtually. In particular, we're excited to share new plans for our King's Internships portfolio which will launch in summer.
In the meantime, we've relaunched our King's Employer Engagement website - www.kcl.ac.uk/employers and there are still many opportunities to engage in the coming weeks.
Among the highlights of this term are:
- Our second China Careers Networking Night (5 March) providing an opportunity for employers to engage our Chinese students and showcase their roles in China or elsewhere.
- Our Women in Finance Networking Night, held in conjunction with King's Business School (9 March tbc) enabling female speakers and graduates to empower our female student population or discuss particular strategies or ideas to enhance their understanding of the breadth within finance.
Plus, our King's Internships Advance Scheme for disabled students is back, providing bespoke opportunities for organisations to benefit from the significant talent these candidates bring together with a wealth of support and information from specialists here at King's. Further information on this year's scheme will be available shortly.
Thinking further ahead...
Booking for our major careers fairs and networking nights this autumn is just around the corner, opening on 6 February for King's Recruiter's Club members and 20 February for all employers. So, if you're keen to engage with diverse cohorts of students consider attendance at one of our thematic networking nights focusing on female and diversity engagement or our sector-specific careers fairs remain the best place to enhance your brand presence at King's and meet the widest range of students in a short period of time.
You can also schedule your own presentation, webinar or bespoke event activity for the next recruitment cycle from February by completing a presentation request here at King's or alerting us to your existing activity which we can advertise free on our King's CareerConnect platform.
But that's not all - shortly, we'll be scheduling our faculty engagement, skills workshops, case studies and panel activity and we're always looking for employers and alumni to participate in upskilling our students and showcasing the realities of different roles and industries, so if you're interested in taking part or developing a workshop with us, get in touch.
