Autumn Careers & Placements Fairs: information for employers

Find out details about attending our Autumn Careers and Placements Fairs as an employer.

About the fair

This is our largest and best-attended careers fair of the academic year and takes place at the centre of our campus. It is an important event in the annual careers programme, and employers find it a useful opportunity to attract high-calibre applicants.

The fair spans five days to accommodate many exhibitors and theme the days appropriately. The topics for each day will be marketed to students to help them narrow their search for placement and graduate opportunities, to facilitate quality interactions.

We expect a wide range of industrial, commercial and public sector employers. Students from all years and degree disciplines will be invited to the fairs, which will be widely advertised. Please make sure you have appropriate opportunities for the day you book.

The University of Bath aims to provide accessible venues for events. If you are a representative at a fair and you have any special support needs, please let us know in advance.
