Festival of Careers

students at a careers fair

The Festival of Careers is more than just a careers fair - it’s an entire week filled with workshops, presentations and information sessions dedicated to helping students find out more about what’s available in the world of work, entrepreneurship and study.

Attracting a high number of students each year, it is a great way to raise awareness of your organisation and the opportunities you have available, and to connect and engage in meaningful conversations with our students.

All activities are managed in line with our Careers and Employability Advertising Policy (PDF, 174kb).

Future dates

  • Autumn 2023 (9 – 13 October)
  • Spring 2024 (26 February – 1 March)
  • Summer 2024 (3 – 7 June)
