We hold several fairs throughout the year and they are very popular with students from all year groups and academic disciplines.
Autumn Careers and Placements Fair (Virtual)
Our flagship event of the year, this fair is for employers from all sectors, looking to recruit onto graduate schemes, placement years and summer internships. The fair has grown in size over the last few years and in 2019 we had a total of 37 employers and over 1,400 students attending. This year, in light of the current situation regarding Covid 19, we will be holding a two-day virtual fair on the 21 and 22 October.
Part-time Jobs Fair (Virtual event in October)
Royal Holloway prides itself in having plenty of opportunities for students to work while they study. Our busiest Part-time Jobs Fairs see in the region of 1,500 students looking for casual and vacation work, keen to develop their employability skills. If you are a local employer and have a good number of part-time or vacation roles on offer, then one of these fairs may be of interest. We hold them in early October and early January, at the beginning of the autumn and spring terms. Our October fair this year will be virtual, in light of the recent situation regarding Covid 19.
Many of our students go into careers in teaching, and we hold our Teaching Fair at the beginning of the autumn term for education training providers, alongside workshops and alumni panels to inspire and inform the next generation of teachers.
Since the introduction of our LLB Law degree in 2015, the programme has gone from strength to strength and in November 2018 we held our inaugural fair, which was very popular with employers and students. We are very interested in hearing from you if you have vacation schemes or training contracts to offer our students.
Spring Diversity Fair
Showcasing employers and organisations with equality and diversity at the heart of what they do, this smaller fair is an opportunity for you to engage with students from a diverse range of backgrounds and academic disciplines, and either promote live roles or have conversations ahead of the busy autumn recruitment season. This event is run in collaboration with some of our student societies, such as FemSoc, LGBTQ+, Women of Colour and the Disabled Students' Network, who are all campaigning for a fairer workplace for all.
