    >> Placements.
    >> Part-time roles (course related).
    >> Internships.
    >> Remote working.
  • Volunteering; strictly UK based non-profit organisations only.
  • If you are also looking to recruit students from other courses such as Law, Marketing, HR, IT etc, there is a separate 'Student & Graduate Jobs Fair' online 13th & 14th October. You can attend both. You do not need to complete a second booking form, simply complete the one that interests you most and email us to join the other.


How the Online 'Nursing, Health & Social Sciences Jobs Fair' works:

  • The event is being hosted on our Careers Platform, as all BU students (c17,000) have automatic access, as do graduates for up to three years after completing their course.
  • There is no platform for you to log onto before or during the event; your contact with students is via your own preferred methods, allowing us to keep the fair “free and flexible”.
  • The booking form collects all the information we need from you to confirm your participation and to transfer your details to the student facing pages.
  • The booking form includes a step-by-step guide and examples to assist you.
  • From when we confirm your booking the students can see your organisation's name, jobs titles being promoted, workplace location, and times of availability/webinars for the 24th or beyond.
  • From Monday 22nd November students will be able to click through to your individual information page that will contain all the application links, contact details, and other information and images you provided on the booking form.
  • Communication methods are your own, and can be a combination of phone, email, Zoom/MS Teams, webinars/drop-ins/1:1 appointments, and expression of interest forms.
    Simply use the Fair as an 'Exhibition of Opportunities' and offer an hour or two via a hotline or email address for questions, or lock communications to 1:1 Zoom Interviews the following week only if CVs/tasks/portfolios are of interest. As you prefer.
  • Students are keen to register interest with you via online forms, but please make GDPR/use of data clear, and the forms should be for the purpose of sharing employment opportunities only.
  • You dictate how long these line of communications are open for, for example strictly 11:00 – 15:00 on one day of the Fair, or for 22nd November for a month afterwards from 9-5. We can easily remove your details once you have reached enough candidates.
  • Procedures will be clear as you complete the booking form, but please do call or email Robert or Sara if you need to clarify any points, either now or later:

Feedback on our previous online Jobs Fairs, organised in the same manner:

1) 'The process to sign up for this event was simple and easy and was wonderfully supported.'

2) 'Successful interviews held on the day, with others pending. All student correspondence was very professional.’

3) 'I thought the organisation for the Job Fair was amazing, we were one of the later companies to join I think as we only enrolled last Thursday, however everything ran smoothly.’

4) ‘I think it is a credit to yourself and your support team it ran the way it did, from our side, to be able to enquire about possible candidates, attend a Job Fair and come away with applicants all within one week is incredible.’

5) ‘I fully appreciate it is best to attend a Jobs Fair in person, however this came a very close second for me. I don’t believe we missed out on any potential candidates and my belief is that we can give students more dedicated time this way than we could in a traditional fair, as sometimes if you have multiple people interested you can find you rush things to get through everyone.'
