After a break of over 10 years, we are delighted to announce that the Careers Clinic will be returning to the London Book Fair (LBF), supported by The Publishers Association.

The Careers Clinic is where anyone attending the LBF can receive an informal careers chat with a Human Resources Manager, Recruitment Consultant or Training Advisor, about anything to do with their career within the industry, be it about opportunities available, their CV, job prospects, training requirements or anything else. Every person gets approximately 10 minutes with an advisor, and where time permits will be able to queue to see another advisor too.

The event will be supported by The Publishers Association which is committed to promoting careers within the publishing industry.

In the past the Careers Clinic was extremely well attended with over 300 people through the doors in three hours.  In 2016 the Clinic will take place on Thursday, 14th April 2016 between 14:30 and 17:30.   Details about registration and which advisors will be present will be released nearer the time on the website   There will also be help available for those unable to get to the LBF, details still to be announced.

Suzanne Collier from says “I am delighted that after such a long gap we are able to bring the Careers Clinic back to the flagship event of the UK Publishing Industry, the London Book Fair.  Although we offer careers guidance all year round, it is great to get the opportunity to help so many people in such a short space of time.  We will be working with all relevant trade associations, universities and training organisations to make sure they are represented in some way.  Our main aim is to have as many Human Resources Managers as possible involved, allowing those who are job hunting to meet a key person in the recruitment process”.   “I urge any HR professional reading this to get in touch with us now in order to guarantee their place.”

The Publishers Association says ‘The PA is delighted to be supporting Careers Clinic at LBF‎ as part of our drive to promote publishing as a career. The PA campaign aims to attract those who may not have considered publishing as a career to our sector, and includes initiatives that encourage retention and career development of the talented individuals already working in publishing.’
