We have:

  • The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers

You can register for website access to the Times Top 100 site, or visit Careers & Employability to pick up your free copy of the Top 100 book. This top 100 list comes from interviews with almost 20,000 final year students who graduated in Summer 2019, so it reflects graduate perceptions. Each company profile outlines its graduate programme, application details, and company information, and the introduction contains sector guides and job-hunting tips.


  • Target Jobs Top 300 Graduate Employers

You can look at this online or come into Careers & Employability to pick up your free copy. The UK 300 list of most popular employers was also voted on by current students – this time nearly 75,000 – and the guide shows top employers overall and also top employers from multiple sectors.


  • Subject guides

We have a whole host of subject and sector guides in the Careers & Employability department specifically designed by us for King’s students and graduates. These can also be found on our Keats pages here (link).

If you’re interested in law, or have been inspired by legal week and our law fair, come to the Careers reception for 2019-20 copies of Target Law guide.


Ready for your face-to-face?

Now you’ve read all about them, come and meet the employers – many of the top employers featured in The Times Top 100 and the UK Top 300 will be coming to King’s to meet students like you. Keep checking back on King’s CareerConnect, because this is frequently updated with upcoming events.


The Careers Take:

Looking at these lists of employers and sectors doesn’t have to mean that you have to apply for any of them. Instead, reading about different companies can help you reflect on what you want out of a job – something office-based, or a travel-based job, team-work or lone working? Remember, what you decide now doesn’t have to be the job you will have forever; discover, focus, and action are cyclical phases that many of us go through multiple times across a career
