How will our events help you?

Our programme of events is aimed at providing you with a series of opportunities to work with employers so you can explore your options, plan your career journey, develop your employability skills, compete to succeed and transition into a confident professional.



Participating in the programme of events will help you to:

  • benefit from expert advice and tips on career planning and job search
  • establish links with and practice networking with employers in a supportive environment
  • explore your career options with various employers
  • gain insight into how they recruit into placements, internships and graduate jobs
