Careers Fairs

Welcome to the Work Experience and Placement Fair

The Work Experience and Placement Fair sponsored by PwC is one of the largest fairs in our academic year.

It takes place on 03 March between 2pm and 6pm.

The fair is preceded by a series of employer panels starting on 19 Feb, created to give you even more networking opportunities and industry insights.

The theme for this year is #ExperienceMore which is exactly what we hope our students will do through the placement, voluntary and work experience opportunities on offer.

Whether you experience more adventure, growth, direction or confidence as a result of the connections and opportunities you discover on the day, we’re confident you’ll add more valuable experience to your CV. 

For employers and organisations, it presents an opportunity to attract top talent from one of the UK’s leading universities. 

With the event going virtual for 2021, we want to ensure that both students and exhibitors get the most out of the new event format. The following checklists will help you prepare for when our virtual doors open on 03 March. 

Don't forget to join in our employer panels from 19 Feb in advance of the fair, particularly if you are interested in the cultural and creative industries, the public and not-for-profit industries and international careers.


We look forward to seeing you then!
