One of the three networking groups we run in the local area, the #UPSocialMedia Network is for Social Media Managers working at businesses in King’s Cross, Euston & St Pancras.

Overview

Originally launched in 2018, the Urban Partners HR Network comprises nearly 60 HR Professionals, who work at businesses in the local King’s Cross, Euston and St Pancras area.

Urban Partners collaborate with KX Recruit with the aim of holding quarterly events for HR and Recruitment staff to identify shared challenges (especially in the run up to Brexit) and to use their collective power to share best practice and expertise to find solutions to potential problems.
