Inspiring specialist careers showcased at event

From the largest equine hospital in Europe to a company that specialises in turning desert into green space – there will be a huge range of interesting opportunities on show at Writtle University College’s Careers Fair.

More than 60 organisations will be inspiring students at the event – on Wednesday 29 November – with the varied and exciting jobs they could go onto after studying.

WUC offers courses in Agriculture, Animal Science and Management, Art & Design, Bioveterinary Science, Equine, Floristry, Global Ecosystem Management, Horticulture, Landscape Architecture & Garden Design, Sport and Veterinary Physiotherapy. As a result, the Careers Fair will give students the opportunity to find out more about a diverse range of employment options.

Among those exhibiting will be The Kings Troop Royal Horse Artillery, Colchester Zoo, the National Trust, English Heritage and the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. A specialist veterinary centre will be in attendance, as well as pet behaviour counsellors, a physiotherapy centre and the local Football Association.

There will be seed merchants, feed producers, major suppliers of berries and citrus fruits plus landscapers and garden designers.

Representatives from professional bodies, charities and organisations giving business support services to the sectors WUC serves will be alongside agribusiness property consultants and specialist recruitment companies. There will also be employees from genomic research centre the Sanger Institute and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science.

There will be three workshops held as part of the event, concentrating on social media and how to use it to find work, the practicalities of running your own business and how to survive assessment centres.

Mark Yates, Careers Coordinator at Writtle University College, said: “The nature of our specialist courses means that there are some very interesting career options for our students, such as a nutritionist, an equine behaviour consultant or a government research scientist. Nearly 97% of the last Higher Education cohort surveyed were either working or undertaking further study.

“The Careers Fair has grown every year and aims to bring together a breadth of organisations to inspire students with the career possibilities that could be open to them.

“Employers really value the chance to talk to students about their future options and students gain a lot from talking to employers about how their studies are relevant to different opportunities. It’s a great chance for students to think through how their studies will improve their future career and studies.”
