Careers fairs and on-campus events
Loughborough University Careers Fairs are extremely well attended; our flagship event in the autumn term attracts more than 6000 students and is the largest campus careers fair in the UK. These high-profile fairs are the perfect way to boost awareness of your organisation among our high calibre students and augment your brand as an employer of students and graduates.
Hosting an event on campus is another key way to establish a campus presence, attract the right candidates for your roles, and educate your target audience on opportunities within your company. Not only do we offer a range of very successful tried and tested options for you to engage with Loughborough students, we are also keen to help you develop bespoke promotional activities that could add a new dimension to your recruitment campaign. Please find out more on our Events page and see below for our careers fair schedule.

In February 2018, we held our Spring Graduate and Placement Fair which was once again a great success. We welcomed over 100 exhibitors from SMEs to multinational companies and around 1500 students seeking graduate, placement and vacation opportunities on the day.
Students from all years and disciplines attend the fair, with large numbers of first years using the day as an opportunity to start engaging with employers and planning their career early.
