The BU Annual Careers Fair (previously known as the Graduate & Placement Fair) is open to BU Students and Graduates seeking information on placements, graduate opportunities, vacation work schemes and alternative options. Previously we have welcomed over 90 organisations and around 2,000 students and graduates to our Talbot Campus.

The event combines all sectors over both days, in order to ensure that all students have access to each sector, regardless of which day they attend.

This year the event is going to be held on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 October 2017.

We are pleased to announce we are taking bookings for this event, via this booking form.

If you have any queries regarding the BU Annual Careers Fair 2017, including sponsorship, please contact us.

As always it will be a fabulous way to solve your recruitment needs and meet (and influence) the next generation of ambitious graduates.
