What's it all about?

95 exhibitors attended this event on 20th October 2016 - many of whom were global corporations. There were also Third Sector and Charity organisations in attendance, demonstrating that highly motivated graduate professionals are required by charitable organisations too.

This is your opportunity to meet the people who want to employ you in 2017 and beyond, so get talkative. And while you’re there, hoover up some freebies, it’s what they’re there for! If that’s not enough, you can also get some hands-on CV advice led by top graduate recruiters and your own Careers and Employability service, right there on the day.
