The TARGETjobs Graduate Recruitment Awards is planning a safe return. Our commitment is to ensure the event is as safe as possible, working in and above the lines of legal expectation, with the co-operation of all who attend.


Everyone that attends the event will have to show proof of being double vaccinated (via the NHS app) or a COVID passport (these can be applied for at: NHS COVID Pass – NHS (www.nhs.uk)

For people who haven’t been vaccinated we would require proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test (within 24 hours of the event start time), logged with the NHS result service. (www.gov.uk/report-covid19-resultk)

There will be facilities at the event for people to do a lateral flow test if required, though is very much advised that the safest and easiest method will be to complete a home test in advance.

Staff / Contractors

All Group GTI’s (event organiser) staff and contractors that visit the venue will have been double vaccinated and will have taken a Lateral Flow Test within 24 hours of the event.
