Recruitment event holds promise for jobseekers and employers alike

Tuesday 13 November 2018

Cambridge Network's highly successful run of recruitment events, where potential candidates have the opportunity to meet leading local employers, continues on the evening of Tuesday 27 November 2018.

Taking place from 6.00-9.00pm at the Eddington Postdoc centre, this event follows last month's popular Cambridge Network job fair, which attracted more than 150 high calibre candidates.

Claire Angus, who heads the Network's Recruitment Gateway, says: "Our September event resulted in some very useful connections being made between jobseekers and the many local companies who came to meet them - we know that a number of appointments were made as a result of meetings at the fair.

"Candidates say that these events provide really productive insight into both current vacancies and the culture of participating organisations, because they are able to meet and talk to potential employers face to face.

"The November evening is our last Cambridge Network recruitment event of the year, so we will be bringing in excellent exhibitors, workshops, talks and hundreds of live job vacancies, as well as recruitment experts offering careers advice."

Among the exhibitors will be:
- 10to8
- Archipelago Technology
- CD Coaching
- Illumina
- IPV UK Ltd
- Kameo Recruitment
- Okra Technologies
- Roku
- Talentscape.

Talentscape will also be running a careers workshop entitled 'Making the Winning Connection with your Future Employer' - a short masterclass on how to convey your 'perfect fit' for a role and company. How do you connect in the right way with a potential employer? How do you convey your 'personal brand' and build 'your story' to give you a real competitive advantage?

Job seekers: This event is free Make sure you sign up here to attend. There will also be CV and Interview technique workshops available throughout the evening to help you to succeed in a competitive jobs market.
