After opening its doors to Manchester last Wednesday, the ‘Linked Inn’ pub will be heading to Bristol this week.
Working with companies such as HEINEKIN, John Lewis Partnership and H&M, the LinkedIn pop-up pub is designed to show just how many jobs are available on the social media networking site, as well as how beneficial socialising with a professional community is when it comes to finding work.
Darain Faraz, Head of Brand, EMEA & LATAM, LinkedIn, commented, “We have been heartened by the response to our In It Together campaign where we’ve successfully demonstrated the value of our community in helping our members get closer to the job they want.
“The Linked Inn initiative in particular brought this sentiment to life, and the positive feedback following our London event, from both members of the public and participating companies, was really encouraging. As we continued to evolve the campaign, and highlight our 20 million jobs on our platform, it was a no brainer to re-open the doors to The Linked Inn to other UK cities.”
Jane Brydon, HR Director at HEINEKEN, added, “The Linked Inn event caught our eye when it was in London. We loved the message that there’s so much more to pubs than just having a pint – they’re places where communities come together, and in this instance, maybe even get a job!
“We’re delighted to be working with LinkedIn by providing the pub for Manchester’s event as well as showcasing the career opportunities at our local brewery, HEINEKEN Manchester. We’re always on the look-out for great people and we see LinkedIn as integral to this process. Who knows – the next time you’re in a pub with your mates you could be safe in the knowledge that you had a hand in brewing that pint!”
