Frequently asked questions

Where does the event take place?

To be decided.

Is this event virtual or in person?

This event is a hybrid event.

What is the event format?

Most of our events take place in the afternoon and typically run from 12:00pm - 5:30pm, kicking off with a keynote followed by skills and panel sessions. All of our events include networking opportunities between members and employer partners - a great opportunity to highlight your brand and encourage our bright members to apply for your roles.

How many people can we bring?

Depends on the package you select.

Should we bring members of our graduate recruitment team?

We advise for your most enthusiastic colleagues to come and network with our members as we’ve found these types of representatives connect best with students, leading to a higher ROI. Previous  feedback demonstrates that members highly valued a mix of Graduate Recruitment representatives, those on a graduate scheme and senior leaders within the organisation to network with. 

Who usually sits on the panel?

We typically suggest a senior member of the firm attends the panel session as this is a unique opportunity for members to hear insights from organisation leaders. Our Bright Network members are from diverse backgrounds so we encourage you to take this into consideration when deciding on your panellist.

How are attendees selected?

Every attendee must submit an application. Depending on the event, attendees are screened based on several factors like graduation year, degree subject, relevant experience and sometimes demographics - particularly for our diversity-focused events. All applicants are also required to submit a statement expressing why they are interested in attending the event.

Will we get the attendees data after the event?

Yes, all employers will receive the name, contact details, degree subject, university and predicted grade of all attendees.

Which other employers attend this event?

In previous years employers like Lloyds Banking Group, HSBC and Macquarie got involved.
