Event status:

The Geological Society Nottingham Career and Industry Day is an essential meeting place for geoscience students and the geoscience industry. The day will include short career and industry presentations covering different areas of geology and academia.

There will be an exhibition consisting of industry and professional bodies, and higher education institutions promoting MSc and PhD programmes. There will also be a CV and careers workshop running alongside the talks, and a drinks reception at the end of the day.


The 2017 programme will be available shortly. Download a copy of the 2016 programme to get an idea of the day.


This event is free to attend, but delegates will be required to register to receive a student manual, free packed lunch and free drink at the drinks reception. There are limited numbers, so places will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Registration will open in June.

Sponsorship and Exhibition

There are some sponsorship and exhibition packages available to help showcase your organisation to future Earth Scientists and to promote your industry. Whether you are looking to recruit graduates or simply wish to raise awareness about your industry, then this is a good chance to meet prospective future geoscientists.


Become a sponsor and you will receive due acknowledgement with your company logo displayed on prominent promotional event material. This will be seen by thousands of Earth Science undergraduate and postgraduate students in the UK, leading up to the events, so the earlier you book, the more publicity you receive!

You will also have an opportunity to include a company profile in the student handbook, which will be seen by approximately 350 students on the day. Additionally you will be allocated an exhibition space in a prime location within the main exhibition hall on the day, so that you can meet face to face with delegates.

Book before 30 June to take advantage of our Early Bird rates!
