The team

The Employer Services Team is a small, friendly team that coordinates all of the cross-university employer activity from the large Autumn Careers Fair through to bespoke events and target emails. We work closely with a wide variety of employers, helping you to connect with our students and recent graduates.

Are you hoping to raise your profile or are you targeting a specific cohort? Get in touch for recommendations on how to work with our students.

Contact us to request more information on our pricing and availability. We look forward to working with you.

We advertise your opportunities online through our Recruit@Bath system all year round. You will need to register if you haven't used the system before.

Recruitment events

For more information and pricing please contact the Employer Services Team.

Employer events are a major feature of our event programme. They give you an opportunity to meet students in person or virtually and promote your organisation.

We are flexible and very happy to adapt our offering to support your recruitment goals and would be thrilled to design a bespoke recruitment campaign for you.

Our events programme runs under three distinct themes.


All recruitment presentations by employers fall under our Career Discover category. Give our students the opportunity to learn about your company and business sector. You can choose to engage students virtually, on or off campus over lunch or early evening. We can support your recruitment by advising you on how best to target specific cohorts.

Examples of Discover employer events:

  • Employer recruitment presentations
  • Parade stands
  • Panel events
  • Careers Fairs


Alongside recruitment presentations, we give employers the opportunity to offer workshops.

Our series of daytime talks and workshops provide a platform to profile your organisation while cultivating our students’ employability. These sessions generally take place on campus or virtually and are open to all students. Delivering a skills workshop or an occupational talk is an excellent way to raise your profile on campus, and because you are offering a service there is no administration charge. Due to high levels of interest in workshops, we ask employers to submit a brief on what they wish to deliver so that we can ensure an impartial and varied programme.

Please be aware the workshops are often ‘mystery-shopped’ by Student Workers and content may be shared in blogs and on social media.

Examples of Act employer events:

  • Mock Assessment Centres
  • Mock Interviews
  • Case Study interviews
  • Competency interviews
  • Strengths interview
  • Psychometric testing


We also invite employers to help our students develop more broadly. Support our students to develop and engage with skills to future-proof their careers, develop resilience and learn tools to manage their well-being in the workplace. As with Act events, because you are offering a service there is no administration charge. Due to high levels of interest in workshops, we ask employers to submit a brief on what they wish to deliver so that we can ensure an impartial and varied programme.

Please be aware the workshops are often ‘mystery-shopped’ by Student Workers and content may be shared in blogs and on social media.

  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Resilience
  • Leadership
  • Digital Literacy
  • Networking
  • Personal Branding

Careers fairs

Fairs provide an excellent opportunity for you to meet a wide range of students from all disciplines and years. Since Autumn 2022 we have once again delivered all our fairs in person on campus.

For further details, pricing & request a booking form please contact Victoria Houston, our Careers Fairs Organiser.

Autumn Careers and Placements Fairs 2023 - Friday 27th October to Thursday 2nd November 2023 11am to 3pm.

Our largest and best attended Careers Fair of the academic year is returning but will look a bit different! Still in-person but now in a venue close to the middle of campus, the 2023 Fair will span 5 days to ensure we can accommodate all exhibitors and theme the days appropriately. The topics of the days will be marketed to students to help them narrow their search for placement and graduate opportunities, with the aim of facilitating qualitative interactions.

  • Friday 27th October - Business, Consulting and Finance (including Management, HR and Marketing)
  • Monday 30th October - Science and Engineering Tech (which should include employers with opportunities in Technology and Analytics, R&D, Pharma, and Environment)
  • Tuesday 31st October - Science and Engineering Build (which should include employers with opportunities in Manufacturing, Construction, and Energy)
  • Wednesday 1st November - Politics, Economics and Society (including International)
  • Thursday 2nd November - Education, Sport and Well-being

We promote to all years and disciplines.

Careers in Sustainability: Careers Fair & Showcase - November - date tbc

This event aims to showcase careers in sustainability across a range of sectors. We want to help our students gain knowledge and insight into the careers available to them once they graduate, in sectors and organisations they may not have previously considered.

Sustainability, eliminating carbon footprints and ensuring business operations are environmentally friendly, are hot topics in the media and for the future workforce. We hope this event will shine a light on the organisations making progress towards achieving these aims, while helping students to understand their agenda and cutting through greenwashing.

Unlike the Autumn Careers and Placement Fair, which is geared towards recruitment, there is no expectation that employers will have immediate vacancies for job hunters. Instead, this event will showcase the growth of careers and activities in this area. The event will be open to all students across years and disciplines. There is no charge to attend this event.

Please request to be added to the invite list to Victoria Houston, our Careers Fairs Organiser.
