Finding your Perfect Charity Job: Quiz the experts!
Tuesday, 5 February 2013 from 18:00 to 21:30 (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
At least 50% of jobs are not publicly advertised, so if you want to know what's out there, you need to know the right people...
This evening conference is packed with practical and motivational advice, tips and inspiration to get your career on track and help you find your dream job in the not-for-profit sector.
You'll hear from several different speakers, drawn from a diverse range of organisations including The Children's Society, Royal Opera House, World Society for the Protection of Animals, United Response, Methodist Church, Universities UK and others within the not-for-profit sector, who will be sharing their knowledge and giving their advice on getting that job!
Practical case studies drawn from a number of different sectors will demystify a variety of careers including fundraising, outreach work, campaigning and senior management, and will also help you think about other possible routes in, including volunteering, internships and trustee positions.
Afterwards, a Q&A session will allow you to quiz the experts, before an open networking session over complimentary wine will allow you to get in front of the people who make those hiring decisions...
Topics covered will include:
- How to find your dream job and the opportunities available

- Transferring from the private sector
