Event Details

2Way Development is hosting a unique careers event designed to help people get into International Development. It is an event that will give graduates, career breakers and people wanting to transfer into the sector from commercial or public jobs, a rare opportunity to learn from experts directly.


The event is split into two: an evening conference held at the London School of Economics, with 9 speakers and networking opportunities; and a 3 hour online Q&A, hosted by guardian careers, a few days after the event.


These 6 hours will offer you invaluable time with experts in International Development that will enable you to:

  • Network with the right people
  • Think about a job that is right for you, in an organisation and sector that suits your skills and interests
  • Focus your job-hunting approach
  • Get practical tips on writing a better CV
