What we offer
Due to Covid-19 and the likelihood of social distancing continuing for the coming months, we have made the decision to run this fair virtually. We would be very happy to send you an Information Sheet so you have more details on how this virtual fair will run.
We expect a wide range of industrial, commercial and public sector employers. Students from all years and degree disciplines will be invited to register for the fair, which will be widely advertised. To attend on the Friday employers must have STEM vacancies. This is in recognition that our Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths students often want to pursue careers in those specialist areas.
Last year the footfall was over 5,500 students over the two days, from the whole range of our 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 and graduate positions are all encouraged to participate.
The fair is an important event in the annual careers programme, and employers find it a useful opportunity to attract high calibre applicants.
Prices available on request.
We also have optional extras:
- Sponsorship of the fair web page and featured employer status on the App (up to four employers).
- Employer Banner Adverts on the App.
Cancellation charges apply – please request or see last section of the booking form.
