University of Cambridge Jobs Fair:-

Our latest University Jobs Fair took place on Tuesday 14th of May and there will be future chances to attend one.

Please keep checking this page regularly for any future updates.

We warmly invite you to attend our next Jobs Fair, which will give you the opportunity to speak to current staff about their experience of working at the University, and get information about the type of roles that you are interested in.

Apprenticeship Opportunities:-

Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study and cover a wide choice of careers.  They are a great way to apply your learning immediately to your work whilst getting paid. The training can give you the skills you need to start your career or boost your skills if you are already in work.  You can also use apprenticeships to develop leadership and management expertise. As an apprentice you’ll:

  • work alongside experienced staff
  • gain job-specific skills
  • earn a wage and get holiday pay
  • get time for study and training related to your role (amounting to approximately one day a week)
