In March 2019 we welcomed 40 organisations on to campus to this new event.

This event will be online in 2021.

All sectors welcome: IT, Business & Finance, Marketing, Teaching, Law, Healthcare and Social Sciences, Management, Events, Tourism, Design Engineering, Sciences, and more.

Not sure what courses we have at BU?: Undergraduate | Postgraduate

Feedback from 2019:

  • 'Very employable students. Lots of Interest. Great event'
  • 'Good knowledge of their field and decent communication skills to engage with us.On the whole we were impressed with the students. They possess good knowledge and an eagerness to up-skill themselves.'
  • 'I feel very confident that we have met people today that we could employ on Placements or Graduate roles, lots of strong candidates'.


Don't forget, all live jobs can be promoted through this website. We average over 200,000 job views per year, and all c17,000 students (and graduates for three years) have access to the platform.
The Homepage explains this in more detail.
