Careers and opportunities fairTuesday 17 October, 2017 – Tuesday 17 October, 2017
11:00 AM – 2:30 PM
Newton Park campus, The Bath Spa Dome
Sponsored by UNIQLO.
We are now closed for 2017 bookings.
The Careers Fair will be held in The Bath Spa Dome on Newton Park campus.
Students from all years and degree disciplines will be invited to the fair, which will be widely advertised across all of our campuses. Many students, particularly those in the final year, value the opportunity to talk informally to employers, while lots of others are also researching sandwich or summer placement opportunities, so we will ask you if you wish to be advertised as offering these.
The fair is an important event in our careers programme and these kinds of events are always oversubscribed, so we would advise early booking to ensure your place.
On the day
This information is for employers (or their couriers) booked to attend the Fair on Tuesday 17th October 2017. 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 location of The Bath Spa Dome is behind the Library and next to Main House as identified on the campus map. To drop-off any stands/goods, please use the designated drop-off point inbetween Commons (CM) and Compton (CP). There will be student ambassadors on-hand to assist. Once you have unloaded, please use the designated exhibitor car park behind the Walled Garden (WG).
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.
If you are using CES, Ian Wilson, MSI or Impressions – please let us know so we can liaise directly with them regarding directions and your stand locations.
Couriers may gain access from 8am and must collect goods within one hour of the end of the fair (i.e. 4pm), 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, then 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, then 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 4pm, after that the marquee will be dismantled.
