Shaping My Future Careers Fairs

Please note bookings for these fairs have now closed, our next careers fair will be week commencing 18th March 2019. Watch this space for further information.

Below are details of our autumn 2018 Shaping My Future Careers Fairs, held in our Waterfront Building Ipswich:

We are always pleased to attract a great selection of local, national and international organisations to our Fairs which are open to all University of Suffolk students and alumni, as well as members of the public.


Our Careers Fairs are an ideal opportunity for organisations and employers to meet our students and graduates, increase brand awareness, and promote what they do and any opportunities they have available now or in the future.  It is also a great way to meet and network with University of Suffolk staff, course leaders and other organisations.  

All organisations exhibiting at the Fairs will need to submit a copy of their public liability insurance details to us. This can be submitted during the booking process, or via email.

If you would like to discuss the Fairs, or other opportunities to reach our students and graduates in greater detail, please contact us via email or on 01473 338833.

Students and Graduates

Our Fairs are open to all students and graduates, including everyone who studies at our Partner Colleges across the University of Suffolk Learning Network. You can register to attend via FutureMe (registration is currently closed) which also contains details about all of our other, upcoming events.

The Fairs are a fantastic opportunity to find out more about a wide range of different career paths. They offer the chance to:

  • chat to employers about their organisation and industry sector;
  • ask what roles they recruit for;
  • find out what they look for in successful recruits; and
  • gain useful tips and advice for application and selection processes. 

Whether you have a clear idea about what you want to do when you graduate, or are just starting to look for ideas, our Fairs are a great way to find out more.

Students if you attended our October Careers Fair/s please complete our very short survey, so we can continue to improve what we offer you.

Members of the Public
