It’s the 15th and 16th of Match 2019 – so thats this coming Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday daytime. We want to ensure that this is best ever careers fair you have EVER been to. Failing that we want to ensure that it’s engaging, welcoming and helpful so we have some volunteers who will be there to help as ‘buddies’ and ensure you get chance to engage and speak to the people that are of interest. Any persons wanting to come can sign up as a volunteer on our meetup page – any humans welcome to help!

We request no unsolicited social media – you are welcome to take selfies but please ask if you want someone else in the picture and if they say ‘no’ that’s it – a complete sentence, no reasoning needed and no badgering them! The same with there being no recruiters, this is a sponsored event by the companies in attendance and not an opportunity for recruiters so let us know if you spot any and we will kindly ask them to leave.

We just got asked how smart to dress as the picture on our website looks quite suited – we’ll admit we were looking for an event picture with diversity on it, we didn’t even consider the clothes. The industry is pretty relaxed about dress code so please don’t bother with 3 piece suits for the occasion, it’s about having a relaxed environment with a chance to actually talk to the people inside companies rather than through their HR or a recruiter. If you feel more at home in a 3 piece suit then we obviously won’t kick you out for dress code but please don’t worry too much (obviously you might want to check for dodgy shirts!)


Friday

The Friday starts at 2pm and runs until 6pm on the 3rd floor of Desklodge House. After that, we are offering everyone a chance to network from 6pm – 8pm on the ground floor. This part comes with free wine and pizza so pop in on your way home and say hi if you can’t make the afternoon. We’ll also be feeding the lovely people who will have been on stands, volunteering and running workshops during the day.

The workshops on that day will be running from 3pm until 6pm and currently we have the following workshops :

  • 3pm – 3:50pm
  • 4pm – 4:50pm
    • UltraSOC

Saturday

This starts at 10am and runs through until 4pm on the 3rd floor of Desklodge House.

We will be feeding our stand holders, volunteers and workshops on the day but other than that there is no food onsite. We will have drinks available (non-alcoholic) and if anyone has a food stand that they want to run outside in the car park then we are more than happy for them to pop along. The workshops are running from 11am until 4pm. At 4pm we will be not be drinking wine and pizzas at Desklodge although I suspect a few of us may saunter down to a local watering hole …
