Awards Evening

Congratulations to ALL of our winners and nominees of the 2011 Careers Awards Evening!

It was a lovely evening and everyone who came had a brilliant time. Edge FWD, our very own all male dance troupe and winners of their own award, performed an ‘Apprentice’ inspired piece to kick the evening off.

We saw Luke Coombes bag 1st prize On Campus Employee of the Year with Luke Chapman coming in a very tight 2nd place and Gina Daneliuk securing 3rd place.

All the photos of the evening can be found on the Job Club page on Facebook. If you haven’t joined us already, do so at

We are helping NASES to let you guys know about a fantastic opportunity available to you all…The VIRTUAL JOB FAIR!

It’s exactly like going to a careers fair, much like the one we held ourselves on the 8th February, except you don’t actually have to go anywhere…you can access everything from the computers at uni or from the comfort of your own home. Brilliant!

So get online on the Virtual Jobs Fair to see all the great opportunities available to you.

I went without any knowledge of them at all, just to get some information and I walked out 5 hours later with a place. So if you are yet to apply, half way through, or waiting ot be placed get yourself down there for the chance to meet the directors of the camps you could be working for this summer!

CAREERS FAIR (Sporting Edge, 8th February)
