About the event

The Penryn Campus Part-Time Jobs Fair is open to University of Exeter and Falmouth University students of all years and disciplines. 

Here you can meet and talk with employers about their part-time jobs and seasonal work, but also consider internship programmes, and placements, where relevant.  

The fair will be held in The Exchange and will host over 40 employers. We'll be welcoming local employers from a range of sectors all of whom have got paid vacancies to be filled. The list of employers attending is available and regularly updated on Handshake (see below for more information). Be sure to save the date.

Please note the Penryn Campus Part-Time Jobs Fair will run from 10:30am until 2:00pm. The first 30 minutes will be run as a quiet session to enable students with additional needs to more easily access the fair experience. You do not need to register for this quiet session. 

We endeavour to make all our events as accessible as possible. If there's more we could do, then please email your thoughts and recommendations to
