News: National Careers Event

Posted on 29th January 2019

I am writing to extend a personal invitation for your business to represent your industry sector at the cities National Careers Event on March 5th at the American Express Community Stadium from 10am – 6pm.


Coast to Capital, Brighton and Hove Council, Albion in the Community, American Express and Laing O’Rourke have come together to create this event and we are extremely proud to offer you this opportunity to be a part of National Careers Week in the City.


All of the schools in the Greater Brighton Area have been invited to attend and will be bringing with them students from year 9-11 to find out about career routes and  give them the opportunity to engage with industry professionals offering  the young people an understanding of different sectors and careers opportunities available to them.


The day starts at 9.30 – 4.00 pm for all Secondary Schools in the Greater Brighton area and will then be open to College Students, Parents and the General public from 4 – 6pm giving your business access to a future and a current recruitment pipeline.


The event is completely free with refreshments and lunch provided  but if you are able to make a voluntary suggested contribution of £50.00 to support with supplying resources for the students to use on the day that would be amazing.


If this is something that your business would like to come and support?  If the answer is yes, you would need a team of staff (approx. 2-4 employees) to support the event.  You can then decide if you wish to support your stand in two groups for am and pm or one group to cover the whole day. Whatever you decide, it would be wonderful to welcome you.


This event is a fantastic CSR, team building and networking opportunity too!


If you could reply asap advising of your commitment to attend then that would be fantastic!


Further information will be sent out shortly, highlighting the detail around the event.


I look forward to seeing you there.


Kind Regards

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
