A message from our headline sponsor, TARGETjobs, for employers interested in attending:
"TARGETjobs is proud to be the Headline Sponsor of this conference. This is a fabulous opportunity for recruiters to meet with representatives of university careers services, who are a key conduit to the students and key influencers in their career plans and decisions. As well as the formal programme, there will be time to network with advisers and other recruiters and to learn what is going on in the fast-changing world of higher education.
TARGETjobs has been working in close partnership with AGCAS for the last two years to co-create better careers information for students and we are delighted to be the Headline Sponsor of this important conference for the first time."
