Attending Our Careers Events

Throughout the year, the Careers Service organises a number of careers events at which employers, students and graduates meet. These range from general recruitment and internship events to sector specific events.

'I particularly liked the fact that candidates were interesting people who were prepared to explore lots of options…..'

'I was impressed by many of the students I met. They seemed much more aware of the industry than in previous years…..'


The table below lists our programme for the year. Our Events are generally open to organisations recruiting graduates and/or offering vacation opportunities, and to professional bodies and course-providers. Before we consider your eligibility to attend, your organisation must be registered with the Careers Service. Use our enquiry form to find out more. If you have concerns about physical access to our Events, please contact the Events Team.
