Opportunities Doncaster LIVE is an annual flagship event that gives over 100 local employers and education providers the chance to meet over 3,500 young people and inspire them about the wide variety of career pathways available to them across the borough.


The day-long event offers a friendly, interactive environment for exhibitors to engage with young people, offer careers guidance and inspire their future workforce.


Part of the lineup features silent-disco-style careers talks and VR headset experiences designed to give young people a better sense of what the world of work is really like.


The event culminates with the finals of Opportunities Doncaster's The Innovation Challenge and The Inspirational Learning Group's Enterprise Challenge.

Opportunities Doncaster is delighted to present Opportunities Doncaster LIVE: Doncaster’s biggest careers event, taking place on 10 March 2021 at Doncaster Racecourse.

2021’s lineup features over 100 local businesses who are eager to showcase opportunities and pathways into their industries, offer advice and share their experiences at our flagship careers event.

As visitors tour the industry zones they will be able to listen to silent-disco-style careers talks from leading industry experts, take part in “have-a-go” activities and get a realistic taste of careers on offer through VR headsets.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from experienced industry professionals representing a variety of roles.

Opportunities Doncaster LIVE gives students the chance to meet professionals from a variety of roles and industries and get advice on how to kick start their career. By the end of the day, students should leave with a wealth of information on local career opportunities and further study options.

"It was a great opportunity to not only engage with potentially future colleagues, but also to network with other stalls and companies too."
