Recruitment Events

What are the options?

Any organisation can benefit from the Careers and Employability Service’s comprehensive and innovative events programme.

  • Targeted presentations and skills sessions

  • Meet the employer drop in stand

  • Networking evenings catering for the Business, STEM, Health and Arts and Humanities sectors.

  • Practice interviews

  • Mock assessment centres

  • Immersive student competitions

How does it work?

If you would like to explore the options which may suit you the Careers Service is always happy to advise on targeting and timing your interventions to maximise investment.

The team can take you through the booking procedures for each event and plan a marketing campaign to maximise awareness and attendance.

“Really great event with students well prepared to talk to employers – bringing professional CVs & the right attitude for the work. Staff were also exceptionally helpful – can’t rate it highly enough. This is my second year doing student fairs & my 42nd event & both students and the event have been among the best I have encountered. We’ll be back!”
