Creating together


Future Focus: Careers Conference 2022

Our annual Future Focus: Careers Conference is back. This year it will take place week commencing 7-11 November.

The weeklong event aims to advance your employability skills and increase your confidence when it comes to thinking about those next steps in your career – whether you know what you want to do after your studies or you’re still undecided.

Why attend?

It is the perfect chance for you to:

  • learn more about different career sectors, to help you on your career journey
  • hear from high-profile employers about what they look for when recruiting
  • hear from alumni about their career journeys and successes

You don’t just have to attend sessions related to the subject you’re studying, as the sessions are open to students from all disciplines. The week really is about exploring your options and interests so you can get started on your dream career.

What happens during Future Focus week?

The week is broken down into industry and skills development days to allow you to get the most out of what’s on offer and tailor it to your individual interests and career aspirations.

The event will be hybrid, with some sessions taking place online and others in-person, to help you to get the most out of the various sessions on offer.
