Jobs Kingdom Live

Jobs Kingdom Live

Jobs Kingdom Live is an event made to inform and inspire children into thinking about what they might want to do in the future at the earliest stages possible, by providing them with a range of career opportunities, but also by having fun in the process.

It is an event organised in partnership with East Lothian Council and the Regional Developing the Young Workforce Group, as well as Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh College, and Napier University. 2019’s Jobs Kingdom Live received sponsorship from Santander, Morrison Construction, and Canon.

Jobs Kingdom Live sees P5 students take part in multiple workshops in and around Queen Margaret University where pupils can test out being a Chef for a day, or a Nurse, for example. They embark on different workshops where they earn a wage. At the end of the event, the children have the opportunity to spend their hard earned Jobs Kingdom Live money at the gift shop.

Jobs Kingdom Live 2019 was a huge success, with the event receiving significant media attention. The event was scheduled to take place once again in mid-2020 however due to the impacts of COVID we hope for this success of an event to resume in 2022.
