We would like to invite you to register for the ExpoTalent event taking place on Wednesday 11 March.

This event is the perfect opportunity for your business to connect with up-and-coming talent as our second year students will be showcasing their work from the following disciplines: computing, games, animation, vfx, music and digital technologies.

ExpoTalent gives you the opportunity to recruit students for year-long placements or summer internships but it also puts your organisation in front of our students as a potential future employer.

You may wish to sponsor our ExpoSeries events to help promote your brand to our emerging talent, alumni and future leaders. For more information about sponsorship please contact Joanne Marwood / 01642 342608.
