Careers fairs provide you with the chance to meet employers face-to-face, to learn about current vacancies and opportunities available, and to market yourself to prospective employers. Most of our fairs have several talks you can attend as well, about the sector and opportunities within it – and often the opportunity to get advice on your CV from professionals. See each fair booklet for further details.

If you’re attending a fair, we recommend you read our information on how to prepare for a careers fair for useful tips.
