Pakistan employers hold recruitment fair in Glasgow

Pakistani students from Glasgow and beyond will have the chance to meet with a range of employers from Pakistan at a special recruitment fair on Friday 24 February.

A delegation of 16 employers from a range of sectors including energy, car manufacturing, management, HR, engineering, law, retail and food, is visiting Glasgow on a trip arranged by EducationUK British Council and the UK Trade & Investment (UKTI).

The fair will provide Pakistani students studying in Scotland with an opportunity to meet with employers from the country and potentially find work for when they return after graduation. Scottish Pakistani students are also welcome to attend the event.

The event will take place in the Kelvin Gallery in the Main Building from 11am until 1pm.

Jane Weir, Director of Careers Services at the University of Glasgow, said: “We are delighted to welcome this delegation of employers from Pakistan and to host their visit to Scotland.

“We are committed to helping our international students find graduate-level jobs on completing their studies and this fair provides an excellent opportunity for our Pakistani students to talk with employers in their home country.”

Employers attending the event are: Sidat Hyder Morshed Associates, Surridge & Beecheno, United Energy Pakistan Ltd, Indus Motor Co., Narejo Human Resources, Emaar DHA Islamabad Ltd, Engro Corp Ltd, National Foods Ltd, Siemens, Pakistan Engg Co. Ltd, Barclays Bank Pakistan Plc, L’Oreal Pakistan Ltd, Fatima Group, Team-A Ventures, Kings Group, Arif Habib Investments.

The visit is part of the Corporate Initiative scheme launched by EducationUK British Council and the UKTI to bridge the gap between Pakistani students studying in the UK and potential employers in Pakistan.

Under the initiative, employer’s fairs are being organised at institutions throughout the UK where there are significant numbers of Pakistani students.
