Employers at QMU Recruitment, Volunteering and Information fairs

We have organised recruitment and information events for part time work and work experience since 2000.

Autumn Recruitment Fairs

Autumn Recruitment fairs are organised at the beginning of the academic term in September or October every year.
Students find that this is an excellent opportunity to find part time, seasonal or voluntary opportunities. This popular event is mainly attended by international, postgraduate and first year students. Some employers also use this event to raise the profile or their organisation to attract potential graduates.

QMU 16th Annual Recruitment and Volunteering Fair
(Part Time Work, Work Experience & Graduate Work)
(Tuesday 27 September 2015 (from 11.30 to 14:00)
Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh EH21 6UU

The Careers & employability team at Queen Margaret University is preparing another exciting event where you can recruit our students as well as raise the profile of your organisation. Your opportunities can help our students to gain invaluable skills through part time work, volunteering, summer placements or internships. Employers’ feedback may encapsulate what you can expect from this event:

- “Reasonable affordable means of recruiting staff, especially for the time leading up to Christmas”
- “Very relevant degrees, genuine interest on what we do”
- “Students were keen and enthusiastic”
- “Very interested. Well-informed and focused”
- “Great. Most of them knew exactly what kind of opportunity they were looking for.
- “Good quality of candidates who we will be able to assist with part time temporary work”

QMU's successful 2015 fair was attended by 400 students. The use of social media was the most popular way for students to find out information about the event. We will therefore advertise your organisation in our Facebook and Twitter Pages as well as our website before and during this event together with traditional posters thousands of flyers and targeted emails to raise the profile of your organisation.
