A stall at the Meet the Employers fair

Employers Fairs - information for employers

Our 2019 Meet the Employers Fair took place on Wednesday 16 October 2019. It was attended by 180 organisations and 3,000 students.

At this annual event, our talented students and graduates were able to connect with employers that recruited for an extensive range of graduate jobs, industry placements, internships, and volunteering opportunities.

Employers gained excellent business exposure, raised brand awareness on campus and spoke directly to cross-sector students and graduates to recruit for placements, internships, graduate schemes and more.

A word from our sponsor NMI “…We felt that it was very well organised on the day and also in the lead up - nothing was left to question”.

  • 93% thought the organisation of the event was excellent/very good
