As part of the OA Connect series we are hosting our first London Networking Evening at The Kia Oval cricket stadium, Vauxhall on 26th October. This event will bring together serving and retired officers, OA supporters and key employers from across the UK and will provide the opportunity to build connections, share knowledge and benefit from the wealth of talent, and skills of those leaving the military. The event is held in partnership with Security Cleared Jobs who are also hosting a careers Expo in Westminster the next day.
This event will be a chance to ‘practice your pitch’ in an informal atmosphere, ask questions of the employers present, get insider tips on what it’s like to work in many different sectors, understand where your skill set would fit into different organisations and more. A range of employers from varied industries such as Cyber, Risk Management, Defence, Public Sector, Project Management, Engineering & Infrastructure, Financial Services and Professional Services will be present on the night.
Reasons to attend:
- Enjoyable, relaxed professional networking event
- Opportunity to meet great military talent and connect with military friendly employers
- Grow your network – increase your knowledge and contacts of sectors and industries – for your current or future roles
