The University of Hull is offering businesses in the region the opportunity to recruit and connect with students at a part-time jobs fair.
The fair, which will take place on Wednesday 2 October in the Kingsley Suite, in the University’s Canham Turner building, will provide employers with the chance to meet students face-to-face and promote their part-time/casual vacancies at no cost.
Businesses which have already booked to attend include: DoubleTree by Hilton, Dove House Hospice, Army Reserves, AA Global, KCOM Stadium and Victoria Plum.
John Harrison, Head of Careers, Entrepreneurship and Study Abroad at the University of Hull, said: “We work closely with employers – both locally and beyond to generate opportunities for our students. We know that many of our students are keen to work part-time during their studies – as well as providing extra cash, part-time work can also offer a break from academic work, whilst supporting the development of critical employability skills.
“We hope that by organising this fair, we are helping by putting our students in touch with employers early on in the semester, and that it will also be beneficial for businesses and organisations in the region to be able to recruit staff in this way. Last year, nearly 500 students attended the event.”
The University has a strong employability record, with 95.9% of students in work or further study within six months of graduating.* The University’s Careers and Employability service recognises the impact part-time work can have on developing the key skills to prepare students for graduate employment.
