Our annual Business and Careers Fair gave students the opportunity to network with employers.
On 5 November, we welcomed a mix of SMEs, national and international organisations to talk to students about placements, internships and graduate jobs. Exhibitors included Audit Partnership, Boal & Co, Key Capital Partners, PwC and many more.
This year the fair ran with a theme of diversity in the workplace, addressing industry trends and the needs of our students. To support this, representatives from companies such as ASDA, Charlton Morris, Enterprise, and Network Rail ran a series of employer-led workshops addressing topics such as 'Reverse Mentoring' and 'Diversity and Inclusion'.
Employers commented positively on the level of engagement from our students, who saw the value of the day as an opportunity to build their network and aid their personal and professional development.
