Employer event

The Careers and Enterprise team connects thousands of Queen Mary students each year with graduate and early careers recruiters. Taking part in a Queen Mary event can boost your brand recognition, advertise your vacancies and shape your workforce for the future.

Throughout the year, we will be running a variety of Careers Fairs, Workshops, Panels, and Inclusion Events. For 2023/24, events with multiple employers will be predominantly held in person, as well as welcoming employers onto campus for workshops and promotional stands.

Please contact employer-engagement@qmul.ac.uk if you would like to arrange a discussion with our Employer Engagement team to enhance your Queen Mary student engagement strategy for the academic year. 

This is an overview of our 2023 - 2024 employer activity. All events are free of charge to attend. Please click here to complete an expression of interest form for the activities you are interested in. For more information, or to arrange a discussion about your engagement strategy, please contact  employer-engagement@qmul.ac.uk.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is at the heart of everything we do at Queen Mary. We want to ensure our events bring inspiration and confidence to our students and promote inclusivity. For all Careers Events, we aim to find speakers who reflect our student body and commit to asking one Social Justice question at all panel events. 

For full information about our commitment to EDI at all Careers Events, please see our statement of intent: QMUL Careers and Enterprise Statement of Intent [PDF 109KB]

To monitor inclusivity at events, we collect optional Special Category Data from speakers. For more information on the process and purpose, please read our Special Category Data statement: QMUL Careers and Enterprise Special Category Data Statement - 2023 [PDF 262KB]

We also host a range of inclusion events throughout the year. Please contact employer-engagement@qmul.ac.uk if you would like to recommend a speaker for an event or to find out about any upcoming inclusion events.
