On Wednesday 24th January 2018 we will be holding our fourth annual Research and Employability Fair. The event has been continuously growing, with last year’s employers including Pfizer, National Trust, RSPB, Wildwood and many more attending.

The Core ran employability workshops and were present during the fair offering CV checking. The fair provides an opportunity for staff and students to network with local companies that may be offering work experience, internships and potential future employment for our graduates.

The employers stated how passionate, well-informed and eager to learn our students were, with many expressing their interest in attending the next fair in 2018. Our students reported it was “really informative and helpful” with a “great selection” of companies from various fields. 

If you are interested in attending our next fair on 24th January 2018 please register your details to book your stall.

Student testimonial

'Last year's careers fair was a great opportunity to meet local employers and volunteering organisations. Considering I do an environmental science degree, I didn't think the police forensic investigation department would have any interest in my skill set, but I went to have a talk with them out of interest. The next thing I knew, we were talking about nematodes (microscopic worms) and how they can be used by forensic investigators to help determine the location or time of year a murder was committed! Overall it was a valuable experience that gave me an insight into the variety of career options available to me after completing my degree.'
