Recruitment event designed to help employers find talented part-time staff
Jobs fair set to help businesses fill their part-time or seasonal vacancies by tapping into local student talent.
Taking place on Wednesday 5 October, from 11.00am - 2.00pm at the Roland Levinsky Building (Plymouth University Main Campus), the Fair is totally free of charge, and a great way to find suitable recruits for part-time and seasonal vacancies - or volunteer opportunities.
Organised by the University's Student Jobs team in partnership with the University of Plymouth Students' Union, the Fair not only offers employers a simple and easy way of reaching out to students, but also gives businesses the opportunity to discover more about the range of ways they can interact with the University to boost their business.
As exhibitors at the Summer Jobs Fairs, Riverford Organic Farm were pleased with the interested their vacancies received:
"We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Plymouth University’s Part Time Job Fair. A fantastic free event which was exceptionally well organised and attended. We came away with lots of interest from students wanting to work for us. We will definitely be attending again in future." Riverford Organic Farm
Another previous exhibitor, Mash Staffing, had the following to say about the event:
"Really great event with students well prepared to talk to employers – bringing professional CVs & the right attitude for the work. Staff were also exceptionally helpful – can’t rate it highly enough. This is my second year doing student fairs & my 42nd event & both students and event have been among the best I have encountered. We’ll be back in 2016." Mash Staffing
University recruitment fairs attract over 1000 students each time, and are a fantastic way for businesses to raise their profile with the student community who represent an enormous pool of talent and skills for the region - both before and after they graduate. Plymouth University students cover a vast arrange of disciplines, and large numbers are interested in looking for part-time work to fit around (and potentially complement) their studies.
