Prominent names from the fields of broadcasting, engineering, finance and government will be among those represented at the University’s annual Careers Fair, which takes place at the Bonar Hall on Thursday 19 October.

The flagship event provides visitors with the opportunity to discuss job opportunities, including graduate schemes and internships, face-to-face. 

Ruth O’Riordan, Head of Careers Services at the University, said, “Our Careers Fair is one of the largest recruitment events of its kind and reflects the high regard in which our students and graduates are held.

“We had more than 1200 people attend last year’s event, giving employers the opportunity to showcase the opportunities our community can benefit from via their University of Dundee qualification. It also gives companies the chance to provide tailored information about potential career opportunities, which can be invaluable to students and graduates taking their first steps on the career ladder.”

Among those attending the event are financial giants Barclays, KPMG, Lloyds, and Morgan Stanley, while nationally recognised names such as Network Rail, Sky, Transport Scotland and Waterstones will also be available to speak with. Several branches of the armed forces will also be in attendance.

As well as those from the University of Dundee, students and graduates from other local universities are welcome to attend, with registration required in advance via the University website.

The University of Dundee Careers Fair takes place in the Bonar Hall, Park Place, from 10.30am–2.30pm on Thursday 19 October.
