Careers and Enterprise

Host or attend an event

Employer event

The Careers and Enterprise team connects thousands of Queen Mary students each year with graduate and early careers recruiters. Taking part in an on-campus 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, Alumni Panels, and Diversity Events. In line with the university’s ‘blended’ approach to learning, all events will be held virtually until further notice. We are excited to use an online platform to revolutionise and increase student engagement with all careers events. Read more about Queen Mary’s latest updates.  

Please contact careers-events@qmul.ac.uk if you would like to arrange a call and discuss your full student engagement strategy for the academic year. 

We are excited to announce our first Graduate Opportunities Fair taking place Wendesday 9th June, 17:00-19:30.

This is a virtual fair with a difference. Targetted at final year students, each organisation will have 3-5 minutes and 1 slide to 'pitch' the company and available opportunities. Following the pitches, organisations will be split into breakout rooms where students can ask follow up questions. It is a great opportunity to engage all attendees and increase name recognition.

The event is free of charge to attend and is exclusively for organisations who have live opportunities on the event date. 

Bookings open Monday 12th April. To register your interest and receive a reminder when bookings open, contact careers-events@qmul.ac.uk

This is an overview of our exciting 20/21 events schedule. We are always open to hosting additional events. The 21/22 events schedule will be released in June. For more information or to arrange a call about getting involved in future events, please contact careers-events@qmul.ac.uk.
