Meet our students
We're keen to develop innovative ways for you to engage with our students as well as offering simple and effective options of attending our career fairs or holding a recruitment presentation.
We organise a number of generalist and sector-specific Careers Fairs throughout the year so you can attract a wide range of students or target certain disciplines. With thousands of students and graduates attending our fairs, they are an excellent way to reach large numbers of people.
Our fairs attract local, national and international companies and organisations, all with one aim: to recruit our high-quality students and graduates.
Ordinarily our careers fairs take place face-to-face at one of our excellent on-campus conference centres. However, due to the impact of Covid-19 and the continued need to employ appropriate social distancing measures we’ve decided to deliver our autumn 2020 programme online, rather than in person. Your safety, and that of our students and staff, is paramount in our minds at this time.
Our autumn term programme will be supported by a Virtual Careers Fair platform and will take place on:
Monday 12th October - Engineering, Science and Technology Careers Fair and Biosciences Careers Fair
Wednesday 14th October - Management, Consulting and Finance Careers Fair; Internships and Placements Fair and Government, Public Sector and Charities Careers Fair
Monday 19th October - Law Careers Fair
If you’re interested in joining any of our autumn term Careers Fairs please contact our Recruiter Services team to discuss which ones are most appropriate to support your recruitment activity.
Do you want to raise awareness of your company with our students? A presentation is a good starting point as you can provide an overview of your company, career opportunities and the application process. It also gives the students chance to speak to you directly. Talk to the Recruiter Services team to find out more.
Employer drop-in sessions
These sessions are an excellent way to raise your profile and meet potential candidates on a one-to-on basis. They can be arranged as a one-off event or as a follow-up to your company presentation.
Employer led skills workshops
Working in partnership with us will give you the opportunity to directly contribute to the employability of our students and share your knowledge and expertise.
Arrange on-campus interviews for the opportunity to meet our talented students who are keen to discuss their future with you.
