On board are companies, that will be actively recruiting, including UK’s top companies including John Lewis Partnership, Visa, Lloyds Banking Group, Amazon, Expedia and LADBible.

A photographer will be resident on both nights giving people the chance to perfect their professional LinkedIn profile picture.

Darain Faraz, careers expert at LinkedIn, said: “On LinkedIn the job search needn’t be arduous, in fact you can approach it as you would other social activities. By engaging your network and sharing, posting and connecting with your LinkedIn community, you can get closer the job you want.

"That’s why we’ve set up The Linked Inn - to bring this to life, and demonstrate the job seeking process needn’t be as time intensive as you might think.”
