Event description

Description

Workshop Information

Find out what all the different departments, divisions and functions of a business or organisation do, so you know what to look for when applying for jobs.

Most job adverts just describe the role. How do you find out what that really means, and how that fits within the overall business? This workshop will explain what those functions involve so you can make more informed career choices.

The workshop will build a picture of a typical organisation, the different functions within it and how they link together. This will show the career paths, skills needed, earnings potential and type of work involved. This knowledge is invaluable for anyone planning further/higher education and a career with commercial, not for profit and public sector employers. The workshop is interactive and you will work in a team to build your own “business”.
