Over 200 employers will be at the Fair

The Autumn Careers & Placements Fair is the biggest careers fair of the year. Over 200 employers are expected over 2 days - big and small, national and local, and from a range of sectors. Thursday is an ‘all disciplines’ day and Friday is STEM specific; you don’t have to pick a day – why not attend both! Use the App to find out which day your favourite employers will be attending.

Some employers will attend both days, so do check the App online beforehand.

You will all be asked to swipe your student library card when you arrive.

What to expect

The Fair is an opportunity to find out what some of the big and smaller employers are offering for all years & all degree subjects. Each employer will have their own stand with representatives from the organisation that you can speak to.

You can gather information and use it to your advantage when making your applications, as well as getting an early feel for whether a particular employer is going to be right for you.

To get a feel for the Fair watch the videos on this page.
