Law Fair

Part-time Jobs Fair

This takes place on 3 October 2019. If you want to recruit students for local part-time roles, this is a good opportunity to meet potential applicants. Last year, more than 1,000 students attended.

Summer Jobs Fair

If you're offering summer vacation roles, this fair runs every February.

Mini Careers Fair

This is happening on 5 June 2019. If you're still recruiting for graduate-level roles, put yourself in front of students who are about to leave Sussex.
