Summer jobs event designed to help employers find talented part-time recruits
Jobs fair set to help businesses fill their part-time or seasonal vacancies by tapping into local student talent.
Taking place on Wednesday 10 February, 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.
The February date has been timed to allow employers to secure staff in preparation for the busy holiday season.
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.
To date, a number of local and national employers have already sign-up to have a presence at the fair. These include:
- Stafford House Study Holidays
- Riverford Organic Farms
- Royal Navy Reserves
University recruitment fairs attract over 1000 students each time, so the Fair is 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.
