Design Your Future Festival 2021

This year, the Careers and Employability Service are hosting a 3-week festival of events to support students in accessing work experience, graduate roles, part-time work and entrepreneurship activities.

It's a great time to start looking at opportunities, find a placement or graduate career, whilst networking with your potential future employer. A broad range of employers attend our fairs, from international organisations to small and medium businesses, so it really is your chance to design your future.

Included in the Design Your Future Festival are our three virtual careers fairs, employer-led panel events and employability workshops. For the latest updates, visit MyCareer.
