Bristol gets a taste of the Linked Inn careers event

The Linked Inn, a pop-up pub launched by LinkedIn, is to resurface next week, this time in Bristol.

Back in March, the professional network took to London’s Shoreditch to debut the pub, which hosted a careers event. The event showed how socialising can get jobseekers closer to the job they want, with brands such as John Lewis Partnership, Lloyds Banking Group and LADBible among those showcasing vacancies at the pop-up.

LinkedIn experts offering career advice were also on hand, while LinkedIn profile pictures were taken by a professional photographer.

The event proved so successful, with the pub receiving double the number of attendees than expected, that the Linked Inn reopened its doors in Manchester earlier this week and is due in Bristol on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 June between 5pm and 9pm.

The events form part of LinkedIn’s wider ‘In It Together’ campaign, which first launched in 2018 focusing on how LinkedIn’s diverse community of professionals help each other to find the right job and are being supported by marketing efforts in Manchester and Bristol, including an out-of-home (OOH) advertising as well as a radio, digital and social media push.
