The world's largest professional networking platform, LinkedIn, is launching another pair of pop-up pubs in two major UK cities after a previous well-received London trial run.
The Linked Inn, which is designed to demonstrate the volume and breadth of jobs available on LinkedIn, as well as how socialising with a professional community can get you closer to the job you want, will open for a second day in Manchester, Wednesday 5th June. The pub will also be heading to Bristol next week.
Guests can take advantage of ‘Daily Live Jobs Specials’ – vacancies at some of the UK’s top companies, including HEINEKEN, John Lewis Partnership and H&M who will be there to meet potential candidates, while LinkedIn experts will be providing career advice ‘on tap’ helping punters to boost their online profile and understand how to make the most of their professional community.
The Linked Inn supports the evolution 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. Today, the company has amassed more than 20 million job listings – a significant step change from the 30,000 it offered five years ago, and sees its 630 million users collectively applying to jobs 25 million times per week.

The pop-up encapsulated what the platform represents – a community and marketplace for talent, where both jobseekers and recruiters can connect.
