Graduate Schemes & Internships Event

I was particularly impressed at the amount of information the students had researched beforehand, and how prepared they were with questions.

Description: This event is intended for students to find out about graduate roles (these do not have to be formal 'graduate schemes') and internships in sectors such as FMCG, Food/Drink, Retail and the Public Sector. It also covers Advertising, Branding, HR, PR and Property (within all sectors) as well as other areas not covered by the sector events it is grouped with.

Open To: Organisations offering graduate level roles and/or internships, ('internship' is the top Keyword search term!) whether a 'big name' multinational corporation or a small 'niche' firm; those who fall outside traditional sector events such as law, consultancy, or banking and finance; those promoting non-technical roles within a technical firm.

Cost: £680 plus VAT. (Please read our booking terms and conditions).

See the sample programme which includes an example programme entry and event advertising/sponsorship options.
