Careers Fairs and Events
Our careers fairs and events present you with a platform to promote your vacancies, build brand awareness and interact both physically and virtually with your future talent. At NTU, we believe in success for all and value the time and expertise that employers bring to our students’ development, therefore, there is no charge associated with our employability engagement events.
2022/23 Careers Fairs
NTU careers fairs take place in-person, across a number of our campuses, simultaneously using our established online system as a platform for students to prepare for the events and research exhibitors.
Our fairs are open to NTU students and graduates from all courses and disciplines to attend.
On the day, we invite you to explore all the possibilities and start the conversation with future employees from backgrounds you may not have traditionally considered.
Our Term One careers fairs are now complete. Over 230 organisations visited NTU, inspiring and connecting with thousands of students.
Tuesday 7 March 2023, 11 am - 3 pm
Our final careers fair of the academic year will bring together students from across the university and organisations with graduate or placement-level opportunities.
Attending the fair provides the perfect opportunity for organisations to interact in-person with skilled students and graduates who are looking forward to entering the next step of their career journeys.

Tailored university engagement creates sustainable talent pipelines
There are a number of additional ways to raise the profile of your organisation, promote your recruitment opportunities and engage with our cohorts, both on-campus and online.
We don’t offer a one-size fits all menu of engagement activities. Instead, we are committed to understanding exactly what your organisation needs and providing tailored support and cost-effective solutions to create sustainable relationships. These interactions will be mutually beneficial – solving a business challenge or resource shortage in your team, whilst equipping students and graduates with practical skills and pertinent industry insight to enhance their employability journeys at NTU.
Engaging with NTU Employability will lay the foundations to create a pipeline to student and graduate talent that meets the needs of your organisation.
Examples of ways employers have previously engaged with NTU talent include:
- Practice Assessment Centres
- Employer presentations
- Pop-up stands
- In-curriculum projects and challenges.
