Raise your brand profile and meet our diverse population of students at our biggest annual recruitment event.
This year’s Careers Fair was our biggest and best yet with over 90 exhibitors in attendance and over 1800 students and recent graduates passing through the doors in the space of just 4½ hours.
We've recently gained our highest ever ranking as No. 22 of the Top Universities in the UK in the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018. We've also been awarded the highest rating of Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017 and have been recognised as the 15th most international university in the world with our cohort of nearly 14,000 (and growing!) students. So if you think you knew Essex, it's time to think again.
With student and graduate employability so key to our success, our commitment in this area is backed by the fact that this year's Careers Fair was the biggest recruitment event that we have ever held on campus. Having invested £12 million in the brand new Essex Sports Arena we can now house double the number of employers and students at the event!
This Fair is targeted towards recruiters and their representatives with insight opportunities, placement years, summer internships, graduate schemes and other graduate jobs and opportunities relevant to our student body, as well as professional and membership bodies able to provide careers information, advice and support to our students and third party student and graduate recruitment service providers.
We are mindful of providing a good variety of opportunity for our students and therefore need to ensure a wide variety of sectors and job roles are represented. For this reason we reserve the right to decline any bookings that we feel do not fulfil this remit or provide a good match.
