Employers Fairs - information for employers

At our annual employer fair, our talented students and graduates are able to connect with employers recruiting for a range of graduate jobs, industry placements, internships and volunteering opportunities

Employers fairs and events 2020/2021

We will be hosting our Meet the Employers careers fair virtually across the week commencing 8 March 2021. This is to ensure our students have ample time to adjust to a new, blended approach to online and classroom learning.

There will be smaller, more targeted events during the Autumn Term including an applicant day for those with roles closing before Christmas. Please email employers.fair@uwe.ac.uk for more information.

As a special offer, all events and activities will be free to attend in 2020-2021; we recognise the challenging environment we all find ourselves working in and wish to be as accessible as possible to all organisations.

If you haven’t already, please create an account on CareerHub and ensure 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.
