East of England Showground, Peterborough, PE2 6XE

The Mission Possible Careers Show is the East of England’s largest skills and careers event. In 2018 the event will be held on Thursday 21st June, from 9:00am to 3:30pm, once again at the East of England Arena.

A record-breaking 6,000 visitors from 38 schools across the region attended in 2017, finding inspiration for their future careers in a fun and engaging atmosphere. 

Targeted at 14-24 year olds, the event is organised by Opportunity Peterborough’s Skills Service team and aims to:

  • Showcase the wide range of businesses, sectors and opportunities on offer, both locally and beyond
  • Improve the aspirations of young people
  • Inform and inspire young people about different career paths
  • Enable businesses to fill skills gaps with talented young people from their local area.

Sector-specific exhibitor ‘zones’ help to guide the experience for visitors, with interactive exhibits and activities that provide a valuable insight into what it is like to work in different sectors.

Mandy Baker, from Manor Fresh Limited, exhibited last year and said afterwards:
“The Careers Show provided a unique platform to promote our work to schools across the region.”

Hannah Del Ponte, from The College of Osteopaths, also commented:
“We left the event knowing we had spoken to many young people and potentially opened their eyes to a career they hadn’t considered before.”

Another key change for this year is the introduction of two hour pre-booked visitor slots for school groups to ensure a steady flow of students throughout the day and prevent any over-crowding. Schools from across the East of England have been invited.
