The Graduate Space Industry Careers Conference is aimed at recent graduates and undergraduate and postgraduate students who are interested in finding out more about careers in the space sector. Since 2014, the event has been run at the National Space Centre, and featured speakers from a wide variety of organisations linked to space. The day is run as a conference, with an associated exhibition, rather than a market style recruitment fair, to provide a deeper insight into the sector as a whole. It is the aim of the conference to inform attendees about the opportunities available in the sector, from engineering graduate schemes to entry level posts with satellite applications companies, and to highlight the skills and qualities that space sector companies are seeking.
The most recent Graduate Space Industry Careers Conference was held at the National Space Centre in February 2016, with the next one being planned for October 2017, venue to be confirmed.
