Graduate and Placements Fair 2016

Wednesday 26 - Thursday 27 October

Graduate and Placements Fair 2016

Sponsored by the Army, IBM and JPMorgan, the fair will give you access to over 75 local, national and international employers for you to learn more about their graduate and placement opportunities.

Our two day event is your chance to try out your networking skills, make new contacts, attend workshops with sponsor representatives from the Army and JPMorgan and get your CV checked over by the careers team.

As well as the fair sponsors you’ll be able to meet employers covering all subject areas from a wide range of industries, including:

  • Arcadia Group
  • BMW Group
  • Farrow & Ball
  • L’Oreal
  • LV
  • Marks & Spencers
  • Mattel UK
  • Microsoft
  • Redweb
  • Screwfix
  • Vodafone UK
  • Xerox UK

Make the most of the fair

Prepare for the fair by thinking about some good questions to ask the different employers you’re going to meet and bring a copy of your CV to either have reviewed or to give to potential employers. On the day, it’s best to arrive early so you have more time to talk to employers and keep an open mind about the different opportunities each employer has to offer. 

Dates: Wednesday 26 - Thursday 27 October
Location: Kimmeridge House, Talbot Campus
​Time: 11am - 3pm
