Local companies and charities are being sought by the University of Gloucestershire to showcase the ways in which their organisations have a positive impact on the wider world.

The University is hosting the innovative ‘Make A Difference’ careers fair on Tuesday 9 March at its Park campus in Cheltenham.  Charities and campaigning organisations seeking students to support their work, companies doing business in a sustainable or socially responsible way who would like to publicise their achievements and organisations employing people in careers which make a positive difference are all warmly invited to attend.

The event which will be opened by Vice-Chancellor, Professor Patricia Broadfoot, is being organised by second year event management students on behalf of the University Careers Centre.

Nicki Castello, head of the Careers Centre said:
“Organisations may come along simply to raise their profile and to provide information and inspiration to our students, or they may actively encourage them to join their organisation, now or in the future, as campaigners, volunteers or employees.

“It’s an opportunity for businesses and charities to associate themselves with a university with an international reputation in sustainability, and for our students it will be a stimulating event which will help them to think about themselves in relation to the outside world, and what they can offer.”

Attendance is free to eligible companies.  For more information and to book a space, please contact either
Nicki Castello on 01242 714794, email [email protected] or Jackie Powell, Employer Liaison Officer on 01242 714793, email [email protected]
