Employer events 2020-21

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are planning only virtual employer events for our 2020-21 programme. There are no plans to hold face-to-face events on campus, but we will update you if this changes.

More than ever before, we value your direct experience and knowledge of changing recruitment practices, flexible ways of working, evolving labour market trends and the skills and mindset needed to succeed in the world of graduate employment.

If you would like to explore options for working together to support our students and help prepare them for their working lives, or if you need any information about our academic departments, subjects and student population, please contact Jacqui at any time: jah30@aber.ac.uk / 01970 628670
