Attend our events

Career and Employability Services run a number of regular targeted careers fairs every year, attracting a wide range of our students and graduates seeking job opportunities either while they are studying or beyond graduation

Careers fairs on campus and online*

Our fairs offer you:

  • A cost effective means of attracting potential recruits to your business.
  • An ideal opportunity to meet a huge number of students and graduates from a variety of disciplines in an informal setting in our large, modern Student Central facility.
  • Direct promotion of your organisation and free advertising for your vacancies with a more personal touch where you can discuss your requirements in detail and encourage suitable applicants to apply.

*We're planning our events for 2021/22 at the moment, which are likely to be a combination of online and in-person events. Get in touch to express your interest and find out more.

Interviews on campus and virtually

We are expecting to be back on campus in Autumn 2021, but in the meantime you can still speak to us about arranging online interviews.

This service is particularly useful if you are recruiting via our jobs board and want to interview students for local part-time or vacation work. We simply agree a date with you, advertise your opportunities, collect applications for you and, after you have pre-selected, contact the students and organise your timetable. All you have to do on the day is come along and interview.

You can also use our services to interview for graduate opportunities and for placements. You are also welcome to include interviewees from other local Universities if you wish.

Available all year round. For more information, or to discuss options, please email employerservices@bradford.ac.uk or contact us on 01274 234992.
