Autumn Careers & Placements Fair

In 2018 the new Autumn Careers & Placements Fair will be held on Thursday 18th & Friday 19th October.  Thursday will remain the ‘all sector’ careers & placements day, while Friday will be STEM sector specific.  

Fair opening times - 11:00 - 16:00, both days
Venue - Netball Courts, Sports Training Village, University of Bath, BA2 7AY

What we offer

The 2018 Fair will be held in our large Sports Training Village on campus with a capacity for 212 stands over the two days. We expect a wide range of industrial, commercial and public sector employers. Students from all years and degree disciplines will be invited to the fair, which will be widely advertised across the campus.  To attend on the Friday employers must have STEM vacancies.  This is in recognition that our Science, Tech, Eng & Maths students often want to pursue careers in those specialist areas.

Last year the footfall was over 5,000 students over the two days, from the whole range of degree subjects. Many students, particularly those in the final year, value the opportunity to talk informally to employers.  Students seeking 6 or 12 month placements, summer internships & graduate positions are all encouraged to attend.

The fair is an important event in the annual careers programme, and employers find it a most useful opportunity to attract high calibre applicants. This event is always oversubscribed, so we would advise early booking to ensure your place.
