Careers and enterprise events

Employer fairs, workshops, volunteering and global fairs, enterprise competitions and much more.

2021/22 information

All large events and fairs delivered by the UWE Careers and Enterprise team will remain virtual for the first term due to ongoing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The majority of events (both face-to-face and virtual) throughout the year will be held via the platform Handshake - this is where students and employers will sign up to participate in events.

Last year, our virtual events saw a significant increase in the number of students engaging with activity and we are working with students and employers to understand what blend of face-to-face and virtual delivery will work best going forward.

We will be promoting all opportunities through our online careers platforms and via our newsletter and social media channels.

We recommend that for the academic year 2021/2022, our external partners create an account on CareerHub and ensure that your communication settings allow you to receive our employer newsletter. This is an excellent way to keep up to date and receive notifications of all events and projects that will take place across our various online platforms.

For further enquiries, please contact and a member of our team will be able to help.
