The Birmingham Skills Series

The new Birmingham Skills Series will be launching in Autumn 2016 and we would like to offer you the chance to support our students through a five week long programme of skills events, supported and complimented by Careers Network.

The Series will take place on Tuesday afternoons between the 11 October and 8 November, 1pm to 3pm in the dedicated Careers Network Seminar Room. As the sponsor organisation, you would be asked to deliver two skills based sessions on the 11 and 25 October, to be complimented by bespoke Careers Network workshops on the 18 October and 1 November. 

The final session on the 8 November would be tailored to your recruitment needs, and would be an opportunity for you to target any specific student cohorts (e.g. women, first years, BME students) who you are looking to encourage to apply for roles.

  • Dedicated access to motivated, career-focused students
