Careers Fairs - Employer Information

Registrations are open for the Oxford University Michaelmas term (autumn) 2021 careers fairs! 

Oxford's seven autumn careers fairs will take place virtually in 2021.

The fairs will be hosted on the tried-and-tested GraduateLand platform. GraduateLand is easy to navigate and allows you to access and view all participants and search by key terms, integrate your presentation into the fair, add PDF resources, promotional videos, and feature vacancies directly on your stand. Most importantly, you will be able to connect with Oxford University undergraduates and postgraduates, as well as researchers and recent alumni.

We hope that the new format, hosted on a sophisticated and easy to navigate platform, will allow you to easily;

  • Reach out to Oxford students and alumni directly
  • Increase your visibility to researchers looking to move on from academia
  • Share better quality and longer exchanges with interested students and participants
  • Integrate your employer presentation into the fair
  • Involve more of your staff with much lower total cost, no travel/hotel/stand costs

Critically, you will also be able to seek out specific groups of students to actively attract to your stand. You will have access to view all participants and search for them, therefore not accessing only those students who would normally come to your stand.

We are also excited that this new offering will be more welcoming for neuro-diverse and physically less-abled students and is of course not weather dependent!

How to take part

To express an interest in attending, please contact the Student and Employer Engagement Team at fairs@careers.ox.ac.uk or on +44 (0)1865 274663.

Some fairs sell out quickly. Guarantee your place and benefit from lower fair attendance costs by joining the Recruiters’ Group!

Oxford University Careers Fair

Tuesday, 12 October 2021. Exhibitors from 12:30-17:30 (5h)

The Oxford Careers Fair is designed to present students with a range of graduate opportunities, across a variety of sectors, and to highlight the diverse roles available. This is our only fair with a broad non-sector specific appeal and so we are keen to attract a diverse range of employers ranging from retail and manufacturing to transport and logistics, creative arts and communications to not for profit and teaching. Covering both national and local businesses, as well as professional organisations.

The fair falls at the beginning of our Autumn term, when undergraduate and postgraduate students are highly motivated in planning their careers and looking for opportunities. This is a key time to engage with them, before the full rigours of the term take over and when they are very receptive to broadening their horizons by hearing about your many and varied roles.

This fair is therefore an ideal opportunity for you both to raise awareness of your organisation and promote the diverse opportunities you may have.  These could include internships or graduate roles in areas such as logistics, supply chain, distribution, sales/sales management, financial management, corporate social responsibility, human resources, operations or communications.
