We help employers run a whole host of events both on and off campus. These can be as varied as formal employer presentations, skills sessions, alumni panels, speed networking and business games. We do not charge for any of the employer events held with us, other than for catering if you require it.

Our multi-mode delivery approach for the autumn term, bringing together on-campus and online teaching and assessment, will incorporate a wide range of opportunities for employers to engage with our students. This will be spearheaded by our flagship Autumn Term Careers Fairs which we are delighted to say will be going ahead virtually.

On Wednesday, 30 September (11:00 – 17:00), we will host three sector-specific career fairs in one unique, fully interactive, virtual online event.

Contact us on ibemployers@imperial.ac.uk to book or to discuss your recruitment needs and we can advise on the best options for you.

Details of some of the events that we run with employers can be found below:

EMPLOYER PRESENTATIONS

Employer presentations typically take place in the evening to avoid clashes with lectures. The format is up to you but we find the best presentations are those that give an insight into your area of work that cannot be found on the company website. The opportunity to network with current employees is always popular with our students. We need a minimum of two weeks’ notice to schedule a presentation.

The Employer Relations team can host your session via our IB Careers Zoom or Microsoft Teams platform, or facilitate an event that you may want to host through your own platform. We manage student registration, event marketing and provide support throughout the online event.

*Where suitable and practical it may be possible to run smaller on-campus networking/recruitment/panel sessions. (subject to room availability).

INTERVIEWS

We can help organise and host your interviews online. Typically these take place two to three weeks after a recruitment presentation.

The Employer Relations team can host your session via our IB Careers Zoom or Microsoft Teams platform, or facilitate interviews that you may want to host through your own platform. 

SKILLS SESSIONS

These sessions are a popular way to engage with students while also helping to develop their skills. We can work with you to identify a topic area but normally these would cover skills required for the application and selection process such as interview skills or mock assessment centres, or to help develop skills they will need on the job such as networking or resilience.

DROP-IN SESSIONS

Very popular with MSc students, these are a series of 20-minute one-to-one meetings between recruiters and students that we can host online. The duration and timing is up to you, but most organisations run these for half a day.

CAREERS FAIRS, SPEED NETWORKING AND EMPLOYER PANELS

On Wednesday, 30 September (11:00 – 17:00), we will host three sector-specific career fairs in one unique, fully interactive, virtual online event. We want to offer you the opportunity to take part by hosting your very own ‘Virtual Employer Booth’ on the day, with no cost involved. You can choose the fair most relevant to you:

•Finance & Consulting

•Commercial & Technology

•FinTech.

These enable you to increase your brand awareness and meet a wide range of students. We typically have over 900 students attending each fair.

Speed networking allows you to hold your own event in which you connect with a variety of students on a one-to-one basis in a short amount of time. It is a way to let students know about your organisation in a quick but intimate setting, and to expose potential candidates to a taste of the company's culture and mission. We also organise panel events with speakers from different companies talking on a hot topic of shared interest – for example "Women in Leadership".

CAREER CLUBS

The Business School has a range of student-led Career Clubs, which organise informal events throughout the year. The clubs cover sectors including Finance, Consulting, Technology, Media, FMCG, Luxury Goods, Retail, Energy, Sustainability, Social Impact and Entrepreneurship. There are also regional clubs which focus on Africa, Asia, India and the Americas. You can find more details and contact our clubs directly here.
