Event Details

Are you looking for a career in International Development?

Maybe you're wondering how to get the skills and experience you need?

Would you like to meet some of the UK's leading International Development organisations, face to face?


We're repeating our sell-out 2010 event - one that will inspire you to take a fresh approach to job hunting and up-skilling in International Development.


The International Development sector is traditionally one of the most popular and therefore most competitive sectors to work in, but potentially one of the most rewarding.

 

The Positive Change team bring over 20 years experience of finding work - paid, voluntary and internships - for people in International Development and in the broader not for profit sector. For this event we will bring together a group of speakers with expertise in all different of International Development – such as health, human rights, disaster relief, different types of organisations, and more.

Whether you're interested in studying and knowing which courses to take, which volunteering opportunities will best position you to find paid work, or some of the back door ways of getting into the sector, we'll make sure you're best placed to make those decisions.


Our informative evening seminar of speakers will give you valuable insight into what International Development organisations are really looking for and present often unthought-of ways to help you find those elusive jobs. Real-life case studies will share valuable secrets to unlocking your potential and writing a perfect application. Hear about jobs that you didn’t even know existed, and be inspired to explore career paths that you have so far overlooked.

 

As well as getting the unique opportunity to hear directly from over 10 different speakers on the night, the Guardian will host a live 3 hour Q&A session between speakers and delegates after the event. This is an incredibly valuable opportunity to network and build contacts in International Development.
