Exhibit at our Careers Fair

Careers Fair 2021

Careers Fair is our flagship event and is run with the University of Brighton. It is for organisations with graduate-level roles, internships or placements. Meet potential future employees and raise awareness of your organisation.

The Fair will be an excellent and cost effective opportunity to promote your organisation, and your graduate, vacation, placement and further study opportunities, directly to our highly capable and motivated students and recent graduates.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the current uncertainty over future restrictions of large scale in-person events, we would like to gauge your interest in both an in-person and virtual fair option. Details of how these formats, and associated costs, differ are outlined below

The fair will go ahead, and by the end of August, we will inform you of whether this event will be in-person or online. 

Register your interest
