GTI Media, organisers of the TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards, is delighted to announce that National Grid is the headline partner for the 2016 event, which is celebrating its 12th year as the largest and most influential graduate and school leaver recruitment awards event in Europe.
Held at Mayfair’s Grosvenor House, the TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards attracts an audience of over 1,400 recruiters, agencies, universities and professional bodies who gather each year to witness 28 awards being given to the UK’s top employers, as voted for by a huge poll of over 40,000 students, conducted by top research consultancy trendence.
GTI Media (publishers of TARGETjobs Law) and The Law Society have agreed an exclusive partnership offering the only online and published guide to training contracts produced in association with The Law Society.
Under this agreement both the TARGETjobs Law website and publication will contain details of training contracts on offer from solicitors throughout England and Wales together with all the advice and information students need to successfully launch their legal career, including finding the right LPC or conversion course.
TARGETjobs Law and The Law Society will also be working together to support and advise prospective solicitors at careers events and University law fairs throughout the year

The full list of the 300 most popular employers in the UK, including rankings by sector, gender and year of study, is published in The Guardian UK300 later this year, when 100,000 copies are distributed to students at leading universities.
