Tips for planning a successful recruitment event!

This is based on feedback we have received from our students:

  • Provide information about what students can expect during your application process, and how they can stand out
  • Bring recent graduates who can talk through their own ‘graduate journey’ at your organisation
  • Showcase examples of the sort of work newly hired interns or graduates will be doing
  • Provide insight into your work culture and ‘what makes you excited to go to work in the morning’
  • Give students the opportunity to network with you after your presentation
  •  Where possible, and appropriate, include something interactive eg: live demo, problem solving activity, case study competition, etc.

On-campus events

On-campus recruitment events commonly follow the format of a one-hour presentation and Q&A, with the option to host a one-hour networking session directly afterwards.

Below are our common formats, however, we are adaptable and more than happy to discuss alternative times and structures with you:

  • 5–6pm or 6-7pm: Recruitment event – no networking
  • 5-7pm or 6-8pm: Recruitment event with networking
  • 8am–9.30am: Subject to availability, recruitment event with breakfast networking

What's included in your on-campus registration

  • Venue hire (a lecture theatre for the presentation and a foyer area for networking)
  • Online promotion of the event including website listing and social media post
  • 2x target emails to promote your event to your chosen group of students, including information about your organisation, current vacancies or graduate programmes
  • Management of event bookings through our online careers portal
  • On-site support from an Employer Engagement team member
  • Post-event report showing attendance data and relevant demographics 

Catering options

If you include a networking session with your event, you can choose to have this catered by an approved campus supplier or arrange for pizza delivery.

Catering is not included in the recruitment event cost and is paid directly to the supplier. We are happy to arrange on your behalf based on your selection and add the cost to your invoice, or if you’d prefer, we can put you in initial contact with your chosen supplier to discuss the right menu options for your event.

Approved suppliers

Pop up / custom events

The Employer Engagement team can work with you to facilitate custom events. These are a fun and affordable way to build presence and visibility, and are held in a busy spot on campus.

What’s included in your online event registration

  • 2x target emails to promote your event to your chosen group of students, including information about your organisation, current vacancies and/or graduate programmes
  • Management of event bookings through our online careers portal
  • Online support from an Employer Engagement team member
