@UniWestScotland @uwshealth Career Fair Deemed a Resounding Success

 

Over 350 of our School’s students, from across the four Scottish campuses, attended the University-organised Nursing Careers Fair at Paisley Campus on Tuesday 12th June 2018.

The event was attended by 36 exhibitors all keen to speak with our nursing students about their future employment opportunities, with several students receiving employment offers on the day.  Exhibitors included local and national NHS Health Boards and government agencies, as well as nursing agencies and private healthcare providers.

Feedback from the event was extremely positive with students highlighting the networking opportunities with a range of employers as well as the ability to undertake interviews on the day as particularly important.  The exhibitors at the event also commented on the high calibre of the students they met throughout the day as was evidenced by the numerous job offers received from our students.

Maria Pollard, Deputy Dean of the School of Health, Nursing and Midwifery said

“We are delighted with the positive response we have received from our students and exhibitors to this extremely successful event. It was very encouraging to hear of the numerous job offers made on the day and I’m sure that many more will follow in the weeks ahead as a result of connections made at the event.”
