Meet students looking for a career that makes a difference

COVID-19 has changed everything - the way we live, the way we interact with each other and the way we think. 

It’s changed the way we think about certain jobs, certain careers. People who work in the NHS, in frontline public services and in retail have earned a new status - they are heroes. 

While the world has been working from home, getting to grips with Zoom and making masks out of old skirts, these key workers have kept us safe, kept us fed and kept the country running.

This has inspired students to consider these essential careers, so that they too can help transform lives and make a real difference. 

Our Essential Careers Virtual Event is your opportunity to meet students looking for key worker roles, to educate them about your brand and the essential careers you offer.
