Events which offer students the chance to learn more about the vacancies and career prospects offered by your organisation are always popular. Employers can hold events throughout the academic year but most take place in the Michaelmas term, well before the closing date for applications
Drop in Sessions
Usually held at the Careers, Employability and Enterprise Centre, drop-in sessions are an excellent way of offering students the chance to ask questions and benefit from one-to-one advice in a relaxed atmosphere. We can offer a room to hire within the Careers Service charged at competitive rates (see Room Hire section below)
Have you ever considered a different approach to your recruitment/brand awareness campaign? Employers are being evermore creative with their activities on campus, from promotional giveaways, temporary structures to interactive vehicles events of all sizes. We are happy to listen to all new ideas and depending on feasibility facilitate these on campus. Promotional “pop up events” certainly seem to grab the attention and imagination of our students, it maybe the concept you are looking for to reach your audience here at Durham.
Room Hire for Recruitment Visits
A room is availble for hire within the Careers, Employability and Enterprise Centre for drop in sessions or employer recruitment visits. More details regarding the latter can be found on the Recruitment Visits section of our website.
Room hire costs in the Careers, Employability and Enterprise Centre: £115 per half day (including refreshments) or £155 per whole day, prices shown exclusive of VAT (including light lunch and refreshments).
Queens Campus Activity
The range of activities outlined above can be held either in Durham City or at our Queen’s Campus – Stockton, for further information about Queen’s Campus please have a look at our dedicated Employer Information page.
A diary booking service
To maximise your potential audience by avoiding clashes with employers from the same sector.
Your event will be advertised on our website where we offer an online sign up facility for students. Once a student has signed up online to attend an event they will be sent an email reminder the day before the event. We can provide sign up numbers prior to the event but cannot guarantee attendance
A listing in our Event Email Bulletin
Each week we will send a comprehensive Event Email Bulletin listing, in date order, all of the forthcoming week's events in the format: date, company name, time, location. This will sent to all undergraduate and postgraduate taught students (approx. 13,500 in total). Colleges and Departments will also receive a copy and may further promote events to students. If you wish to give your event more exposure in the email, upgrades are available.
