Online Nursing, Health & Social Care Careers Fair, 25th November
Information & Booking Form

Quick Overview:

  • The Booking Form will walk you through all the information we need and suggests ways of making the most of the Fair.
  • We provide the window of opportunity and online space for you.
  • Promote live roles or collect expressions of interest for upcoming ones.
  • Be as involved on the day/s as your schedule allows. Simply use the Fair/s as an 'Exhibition of Opportunities' and offer an hour or two via an email address and phone number for questions, or organise 1:1 Zoom Interviews only with those who have emailed you a CV/task/portfolio that sparked your interest.
  • Your information can remain live for one month after the Fair (with 'hotline' details removed of course, unless you specify they are to remain beyond the fair date).
  • Open to all BU students and recent graduates. We work closely with academics to promote your participation with the cohorts you most want to recruit.
  • Roles can be throughout the UK or overseas (apart from Volunteering opportunities which must be UK based, and for charities only).

Feedback on our 23/09 'Online Part-Time & Volunteering Jobs Fair' that was organised in the same manner:

1) 'The process to sign up for this event was simple and easy and was wonderfully supported.'

2) 'Successful interviews held on the day, with others pending. All student correspondence was very professional'.

3) 'I thought the organisation for the Job Fair was amazing, we were one of the later companies to join I think as we only enrolled last Thursday, however everything ran smoothly, I think it is a credit to yourself and your support team it ran the way it did, from our side, to be able to enquire about possible candidates, attend a Job Fair and come away with applicants all within one week is incredible. I fully appreciate it is best to attend a Jobs Fair in person, however this came a very close second for me, I don’t believe we missed out on any potential candidates and my belief is that we can give students more dedicated time this way than we could in a traditional fair, as sometimes if you have multiple people interested you can find you rush things to get through everyone.'
