Students speaking with an employer at an employability fair

Employers Fairs - information for employers

We offer a mixture of small, sector specific fairs for some of our faculties and courses, whilst our bigger autumn Meet the Employers Graduate and Placement Fair has now developed to be one of the largest recruitment fairs in the UK. With over 170 exhibitors and over 4000 students in attendance, it's not to be missed.

Employers Fairs 2017

Our fairs are an excellent chance for talented students and graduates to meet employers who are recruiting for an extensive range of graduate jobs, industry placements, internships, and volunteering opportunities.

The autumn Meet the Employers Fair will take place on Wednesday 18 October 2017 from 11:00–15:00 at the Exhibition and Conference Centre, Frenchay Campus. 

Gain excellent business exposure, raise brand awareness on campus and speak directly to cross-sector candidates for recruitment into placements, internships, graduate schemes and more.

*To all organisations that are looking to recruit from our Allied Health Professions student cohorts please note that this year, rather than incorporating into our large Autumn Careers Fair, the department have decided to host a series of tailored and bespoke student facing events. These are to be hosted at our Glenside Campus, where our Allied Health students are based. If you are interested in being invited to these events then please register your interest by emailing
