Overview of Events (with more information on each available in the main menu):

Part-Time & Volunteering Jobs Fair,
[Including remote working opportunities]
Wednesday 23rd September 2020

1,156 students joined us at the last on-campus Fair, to meet 25 organisations, where seasonal roles and long term opportunities were promoted and secured.   Any sector welcome.  In the past roles have tended to be in the Bournemouth area, but with more employers and students comfortable with remote working they could be nationwide.


Graduate & Placements Careers Fair,
Week commencing 19th October as the showpiece event of 'Your Career Week'
The Fair will take place either Monday & Tuesday or Tuesday & Wednesday (to be confirmed in July).

For Placements, Graduate jobs and Internships across all sectors.

70 organisations and 2,000+ students have attended for three consecutive years, but by being held virtually this number would be increased significantly.


Nursing, Health and Social Sciences Careers Fair,
Wednesday 25th November

In November 2019 this event replaced the old 'Nursing Fair' and 'OT Fairs', transforming them into something much larger and more productive for exhibitors and students.

Relevant Courses:
Three branches of
Nursing (Mental Health, Adult, Children & Young People), Occupational Therapy, Midwifery, Physiotherapy, Sports Therapy, Social Work, Operating Department Practice, Nutrition, Health Psychology, Paramedic Science, Sociology, and Psychology.


Spring Recruitment Fair, March 2021
For Placements, Graduate Jobs and Summer Internships across all sectors.
n 2019  40 organisations met with 951 students.
In January 2021 we will decide if this will be online in line with the other fairs above, or on campus.
