The JET Careers Fair is returning again this year and will take place on 28 September 2022 (11:00 to 16:30 BST), in collaboration with the Embassy of Japan in the UK and Japan Local Government Centre (CLAIR London).

Whether you are looking for information on finding a job after returning to the UK, or just want to keep in touch with the JET and Japanese communities, the Careers Fair is a fantastic opportunity to hear from JET alumni working in the UK and hiring managers from various companies. Come and learn more about UK-based companies and organisations related to Japan. 

Also, if you returned to the UK before this year, we’d like to invite you again if you want to see what alumni have to say about career opportunities and keeping links with Japan, it’s a great opportunity if you’re looking for a change of career!
