NURSING AND MIDWIFERY CAREERS FAIR 2019
- Current Students
This Careers Fair is an excellent way for UWS students from our School of Health & Life Sciences to meet prospective employers and gather information for the next steps in their career.
Our ‘Welcome Pack’ attached below provides everything that students and exhibitors need to know ahead of the event.
To enhance the student experience, this year we have incorporated a student showcase element to the event where two teams of students will present their successful achievements at UWS.
The event itself is an exciting opportunity for you to come along and meet with future employers, and gain valuable information about careers and potential employment opportunities. We look forward to welcoming you to our 4th successful annual event, where a great number of students have received job opportunities.
