March 23rd: Careers in International Development and Global Health

When: Monday 23rd March 17.00 -18.00 

Where: K6.07 

International Development is a hugely popular destination for SSHM King’s graduates, and very competitive too.

Our panel will pass on their experiences within the sector and their tips to build a career.

Speakers include BOND -membership organisation for NGOs working in International Development and Integrity – Private Sector International Development Consultancy.  We will also be hearing from King’s alumni working withDepartment for International Development (DFID), Care International and World Vision.

Applications are open for the 2015 DFID graduate scheme. This is an opportunity to gain 12 months paid work experience within DFID. Whilst it does not directly lead to a permanent position the contacts and experience you gain will be invaluable.

Current part time Masters student in the War Studies department Evelyn Ashton-Griffiths completed the scheme last year and is now a Policy Officer with DFID. She has kindly offered to come and talk about her experiences at DFID and share a few tips on applying at our panel on  Monday 23rd March.

All SSHM Postgraduate and UG students are welcome to attend.

The deadline for the DFID scheme is Thursday 26th March, which is close to this event, so if you have any questions for Evelyn in advance of that email SSHM Senior Career Consultant Fiona Richardson: fiona.1.richardson@kcl.ac.uk and we find a way to deal with them. Here are the full details of the scheme from the DFID website
