Partners

Designing the perfect open day is no small task.

Some agency’s will have the capacity to organise the whole day themselves and may already have relationships with local colleges and universities, whereas others may not. With this in mind, the IPA has sourced a range of partners that specialise in planning such days along with recruiting the right visitors to meet your agency’s future recruitment needs.

Each organisation on the list below has a range of services that may well fit with your needs and budgets. They each vary in capabilities and price so please research all of them before you choose who (if any) you go with.

If you have any questions please contact Phillipa@ipa.co.uk
