Careers and opportunities fairThursday 25 October, 2018 – Thursday 25 October, 2018
11:00 AM – 2:30 PM
Newton Park campus
Our flagship event provides an excellent opportunity to boost your profile, meet our students, and find potential recruits. We have space for 50 stands and will attract up to 1,000 students in a few hours, making it the largest careers event we deliver.
We welcome a range of companies, representing a variety of sectors. Exhibitors attend to promote graduate vacancies, internships, placements, part-time roles and postgraduate courses.
The event is marketed to Bath Spa University students from all years and disciplines, including those based at our partner institutions in the region. As we encourage early consideration of career pathways, you can expect those in the first year through to their final year to attend. Our graduates are also welcome.
Bookings for this year's event are now closed. Please check back in the spring term to book for 2019 events.
On the day
This information is for employers (or their couriers) booked to attend the Fair on Thursday 25 October 2018. The Fair is open to students 11am - 2.30pm. Please use the information and links below that are relevant to you, and ensure that this information is forwarded to all your staff attending on the day and any couriers you are using.
Where to find us
If you're using public transport and taking a taxi from Bath Spa train station, please ask for the University at Newton Park (just off the A39), as there are two Universities in Bath.
The Walled Garden is at the bottom of campus, by the Students’ Union, as identified by the "WG" marking on the campus map.
Please park in the designated areas behind the Walled Garden. Student ambassadors will be on-hand to assist.
Fair layout plan
Your stand numbers, along with the hall layout, will be emailed to your booking contact no later than two weeks before the Fair.
Couriers/deliveries and exhibitions companies
If you're using a courier to bring your stand/other goods, they may only deliver direct to the venue on the day of the fair. Please forward them these details and ensure that all goods are labelled with the client (not courier) name.
Couriers may gain access from 8am and must collect goods within one hour of the end of the fair (i.e. 3.30pm), as we cannot offer security of goods later than this.
All goods must be delivered direct to the stand you are allocated – not to the door.
If your own staff are bringing your stand and other goods in a car, please use the campus plan and follow the signage for unloading. Please unload your goods and passengers here. Student helpers will be on hand to assist you from 9am and again at the end of the day.
Please use the designated car park around the back of the Walled Garden to avoid any undue parking penalties. Parking on campus is at a premium and we have agreement for a limited number of vehicles only. If you have not booked a parking space in advance, please use public transport, and do not bring additional cars onto campus as there will not be space.
Please note, parking permits must be displayed at all times whilst on campus. Parking fines may be issued (by an external company) to any cars who park in the wrong area/without a permit.
Please ensure you enter the campus via the main entrance from the A39. Please drive to the very end of the long drive. One permit, or two if requested, will be emailed to your booking contact no later than two weeks before the fair. You must bring and display this in your windscreen on the day.
No deliveries before the day of the fair
We cannot accept any deliveries into our office or the fair venue before the day, nor hold onto any stands/goods for collection the following day. Couriers must return to collect goods by 3.30pm, after that the marquee will be dismantled.
