This year we will be delivering employer forums and fairs for research students and research staff which focus on different key employment sectors. These events showcase different employer perspectives and career paths for research students and research staff outside academia and provide you with the opportunity to network with the invited speakers. The employer event programme is as follows:
Autumn Term Employer Events
Careers in Technology: Employer Forum for PhDs and Researchers on Tuesday 28th October from 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Careers in the Education Sector: Employer Forum for PhDs and Researchers on Thursday 27th November from 5:30pm to 7:30pm
The Employer Forums will involve a panel discussion showcasing various employer perspectives and career paths for candidates. You will have the opportunity to pose questions to the panel during sessions or to individual employers at the end of a session.
The Table Top Fair and Recruiter in Residence events will involve an intimate fair with a few select employers followed by a recruiter in residence session where you can book to have a one on one appointment with the employers at the fair to discuss any questions you might have in further detail.
Research Students: to book a place visit Doctoral Skills Development Programme website (professional and career development section). Information about each event will be available approximately one month before the event.
