The Employability Festival is a month-long series of over 170 events held across the University and on every type of subject, with a single goal – helping you to maximise your employability prospects.

The Employability Festival is organised centrally by the Careers and Employability Service, with support from each of the academic schools around the University. These events range from large fairs – the Careers Fair, one of the largest employment fairs in the country, on 3rd November; the Work and Study Abroad Fair on 27th October, and the Kent Opportunities Fair on 5th November – to bespoke training designed to improve your skills – developing a CV, confidence at interviews, and tackling graduate employer assessment centres, to name just a few – to sector-specific events to highlight opportunities in teaching, banking, software design, marketing, the arts, and a huge range of others.

The University’s Employability Festival begins on 12th October on the Medway campus, and 26th October at Canterbury.
