The Careers Service hosts a wide range of events and fairs


The Careers Service organises a range of presentations and workshops with employers and Careers Advisers. Events are open to all undergraduates and postgraduates. Some sessions can help towards the Bath Award, and are marked in the programme.

We run two main types of event:

  • the jobs they are offering

You can find upcoming recruitment events on MyFuture

Careers Fairs

The Careers Service hosts several fairs throughout the year.

Autumn Careers & Placements Fair - Thursday 17th and Friday 18th October 2019

The Autumn fair is an opportunity to find out what some of the big and smaller employers are offering for all years and all degree subjects. 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. This fair now delivers an All Disciplines day on Thursday and a STEM day on Friday. You will need to download the App CareersFairPlus to view details. The 2018 Fair happened in October and the App still holds the past fairs details.

Summer Opportunities Fair, 2019/20 - date yet to be decided

The Summer Opportunities Fair is your chance to meet with organisations offering paid work, voluntary and travel opportunities in summer 2020. The 2018 fair happened in November. The 2018 Fair happened in October and the App still holds the past fairs details.
