Annual Careers Fair

The annual Birkbeck Careers Fair is our flagship event of the year, allowing employers to connect with students and recent alumni seeking opportunities for both career enhancement and progression.

The large scale event is a celebration of the uniquely driven and dedicated student body we have at Birkbeck.

It represents a brilliant chance for employers to raise their organisation’s profile at Birkbeck and showcase their opportunities to thousands of our motivated students.

The 2019 Careers Fair took place in September 2019 at Senate House, Bloomsbury.

Plans are underway for our 2020 Careers Fair - if you're an employer who is keen to get involved in our 2020 event, please contact us at .
