Cornwall Campuses Career Fairs

Career Fairs are a staple employability offering to the student body and allows you to raise your company profile whilst also meeting emerging talent. Due to increased student numbers and better facilities we are seeing an increased attendance at the fairs.

This fair is organised in collaboration with Falmouth University and will be open to 7000 students from all disciplines and all years of study, at our Cornwall campuses. Students can use the event to meet with organisation representatives, and find out what options there are for part time work during term time as well as over holidays. This fair offers a mixture of internal and external employers attending the fair with a variety of vacancies.

Volunteering Fair

Tuesday 9th October 2018
16:00 to 18:00
The Stannary, Penryn Campus

This fair offers volunteering, internships, placements and graduate opportunities within the third sector and all aspects of the public sector. Our students already support, volunteer and intern at a wide range of charities, NGO’s and public sector bodies whilst studying with us, as well as engaging in the local community. Together with the academic subject specialism offered at our Cornwall Campuses, our students develop skill sets to become a real asset to any organisation in these sectors, and this is a great event to showcase your opportunities and build your brand on campus.

Last year, we had 33 exhibitors representing local and international organisations and over 500 students attended.

Example companies: British Red Cross, ShelterBox, Cornwall Hugs Grenfell, Camp Kernow, South West Lakes Trust, Mencap, The Beach Clean Project, Girl Guiding Cornwall, Civil Service, Engineers without Borders
