BU Annual Careers Fair, October 2020 date tbc. 

This event is open to BU Students and Graduates seeking information on placements, graduate opportunities, vacation work schemes and alternative options. 

In October 2019 we welcomed 70 organisations, and for a third consecutive year more than 2,000 students and recent graduates attended.

We also host a 'Part-Time Jobs Fair' and 'Health & Social Sciences Careers Fair' each Autumn.

Full course information: Postgraduate Undergraduate

This event combines all sectors over both days, in order to ensure that all students have access to a full range of employers, regardless of which day they attend. One day is not busier than the other (by 20-30 students perhaps, but no more than that).

This showcase event is a wonderful opportunity to fulfil your recruitment needs and raise your profile with our c17,000 strong student population, alumni community, staff, partners, and wider ‘friends of BU’ network. 

Recent exhibitors have included: BMW, Lenovo, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, HMRC, Intel, RateMyPlacement, NHS, Take-Two Interactive Software Europe, WPP, and Xerox.

Please do contact us at recruit@bournemouth.ac.uk if you would like more information or to register your interest in attending.
