Careers & Enterprise Centre

Event Services

Employers can hold a range of events throughout the academic year both on and off campus at either Durham City or at Queen’s Campus, for further information about Queen’s Campus please have a look at our dedicated Employer Information page.

To help you make the most of your event, we offer the following services:

A diary booking service

To maximise your potential audience by avoiding clashes with employers from the same sector.

Online advertising

Your event will be advertised on our website where we offer an online sign up facility for students, email reminders for signed up students and information on numbers signed up prior to the event.

A listing in our Event Email Bulletin

Each week we will send an email to all undergraduate and postgraduate students (approx 13,500 in total), with details of all the forthcoming week's events. We also offer the chance to upgrade to give your event greater exposure and attract a greater number of students. Details can be found on our Email Services page.

Social Media

We are happy to further promote your event via our social media.


Company Presentations

A great way to give an in-depth insight into the organisation and opportunities available. These presentations can take place during the lunch period on-campus or off-campus during the evening.

The administration and advertising fee for a presentation is £95*. Lunchtime presentations include room hire, for evening events, the venue must be booked by the organisation. Event Durham can assist with this.

Cafe Drop-in

Held in one of our on-campus cafe's, employers have the option to bring a pull up stand and branded materials. This is a great way to chat informally with students and to engage with those who may not have previously considered your organisation.

The administration and advertising fee for a cafe drop-in is £100 per half day or £170 per whole day*.

Promotional Activity

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 vehicle 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.

The administration and advertising fee for promotional activity is from £300 per half day or £510 per whole day (full day includes an upgrade on the student events bulletin worth £150)*.

Room Hire for Interviews or drop-in sessions

Rooms are available to hire within the Careers, Employability and Enterprise Centre for employer recruitement visits including interviews or drop-in sessions where employers can meet students on a 1:1 or small group basis.

The administration and advertising fee for room hire is £115 per half day (including refreshments) or £155 per whole day (including light lunch and refreshments).
