Careers Launch: Unveiling the Endless Possibilities in the Space Industry!

Careers Launch is our brand of events that aim to launch your career in space! 

Careers Launch is a one-of-a-kind event created especially for students eager to explore career opportunities in the fast-paced and ever-evolving space sector. This event, oriented at 15-18-year-old students, will offer hands-on workshops, engaging talks, and interactive sessions that will give students a first-hand experience of the exciting work being done in the industry. Attendees will have the chance to meet with professionals in the field and learn about the different career paths available, including roles in engineering, science, technology, and business. This is the perfect opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the space industry and chart a course for your future career. 

Each Careers Launch showcases the variety of jobs and routes into the space sector, and our delegates always find attending very valuable – on average 91% of all Careers Launch delegates have rated the event at 4 or 5 out of 5 for the extent of which it increased their knowledge of careers and pathways within the sector.
