The entire student cohort - including soon-to-be graduates - are interested in hearing from you about:

  • The strategies for change, rewards and the challenges of the particular human services field in which your organisation operates
  • What are the skills and knowledge you look for in new graduates
  • Tell us about the support you offer new appointees
  • Any information you consider important to share with new social workers entering the sector?
  • The presentation will offer you the opportunity to raise your organisational profile to social work students and able to meet them with some potential candidates for your current and upcoming vacancies.

We do hope this is of interest to your organisation and look forward to a successful event for all involved.
