First Step careers event

Thursday 6 February 2020 — 4:30–6:00pm

First Step aims to help students make the most of the opportunities available to them while they study, promoting options as diverse as paid internships, to starting their own small business, volunteering in the UK, and travelling overseas.

By being actively involved in the student experience, they'll not only contribute more fully to the community, but also develop crucial employability skills before they graduate.

As an organisation, First Step gives you a valuable opportunity to inform our students about your organisation and the opportunities you provide. 

We're interested in hearing from organisations that have current opportunities that fit under one of the following categories:

  • paid internships and part-time work
  • local voluntary work
  • summer paid work abroad
  • voluntary work abroad
  • self-employment
