Careers events

In addition to our fairs, we offer a wide range of opportunities to engage with our students on campus.

Employer Drop-ins

Employers and alumni have the opportunity to host a pop-up stand in the busiest area on campus, meeting students informally 1:1 or in small groups. Students drop by to ask questions about the roles on offer, the application process, how to stand out or which skills are particularly in demand. These drop-ins are very informal and do not require a presentation or slides.

Themed Careers Talks

Sometimes it is beneficial for an employer to provide students with specific information on their graduate schemes or internships, or talk them through the application process. A talk can be scheduled as a stand-alone, or linked to an employer drop-in.

Skills Support

We regularly invite employers to participate in our skills programme, supporting in areas such as personal branding, interview practice, CV checking or sector guidance. This type of workshop is good for both well-known and lesser-known employers as the focus is very much on the skill being acquired, and is often aligned to a particular sector.

Sector-themed panel events

Employers and alumni offer real-world insights for students which are highly valued, as well as guidance and mentoring towards their career of choice. We regularly hold sector-themed panels, enabling students to explore a wide range of sectors and gather first-hand advice.

Online Campaigns and Blogs

From time to time we run online campaigns and often ask employers and alumni to contribute content to these, such as short videos, job profiles or top tips for success. We also have a blog page and welcome contributions!
