Target student audience:

  • Students from all subject areas and all year groups will be invited to attend but we would expect most interest to come from Undergraduates in years 2 - 4/5 and postgraduate taught students. 

Suitable for organisations:  

  • From any sector, offering all kinds of opportunities from part-time work to internships to graduate roles, as well as industry bodies keen to represent their sector

  • Of all sizes, both large, graduate recruiters and SMEs

  • Happy to engage with a wide range of students and understand that this cohort of students may have had limited work experience and exposure to recruiters
