Careers & Placements Fair - what's happening
12 - 15 October
The University's biggest careers event of the year is going virtual again for 2021! The employers participating generally offer roles that are open to any discipline. You will find major corporations but also a mixture of SMEs and charities from a range of sectors.
It's a great time to start looking at opportunities, find a placement or graduate career, whilst networking with your potential future employer.
You can browse the Career Fair Plus app to find out more about the employers participating, their webinars and to book Employer 1:1 Chats (details will start becoming available 4 weeks before).
Employer webinars and panels
There will be a mix of panels and individual webinars (12-14 October) delivered by a range of employers looking to recruit to graduate schemes, internships and placements for a 2022 start date. Many will also be happy to talk about 2023 entry. Find out what they have to offer and experience the live Q&A session.
Timings are listed in each employer’s profile and the ‘live webinars’ tab on Careers Fair Plus and on our online jobs board, MyJobsOnline.
Employer 1:1 Chats
We believe our students deserve those valuable one-to-one conversations with employers. That’s why you can book a 10 minute telephone or video appointment with your favourites for Friday 15 October (take a look at their availability via the app from Monday 4 October). Give yourself the edge and find out more about the organisation, job role and how to make a great application. Our friendly employers are keen to talk to you. You can book your appointment via Careers Fair Plus and we’ll notify app users when bookings are open.
Careers webinars and 1:1 guidance
Our expert careers consultants provide CV reviews, careers advice and more via webinars or one-to-one telephone appointments (bookable on MyJobsOnline).
