Are you looking for a new challenge? Or hoping to take the first step in a rewarding career in health or science?  

Following a successful careers fair in January, we are back to help you meet local and national employers face-to-face and apply directly for hundreds of vacancies at the CBC Careers Fair on Saturday 29 June 2024 between 9am – 4pm. Following feedback from previous attendees, our summer event will run all day and on a Saturday so more can come.

We have a wide range of employers from a variety of sectors: whether it’s healthcare, technology, admin or biochemistry. Prioritise your future and meet with employers in person, get a feel for the roles and discover a career path you never considered before.  

The CBC Careers Fair is open to job seekers of all backgrounds and levels. Whether you’re looking for an apprenticeship, graduate roles or management – there’s an opportunity for you.  If you’re not quite ready to dive into a new job, attendees can also get invaluable CV advice and guidance, top tips for interviews and all-important networking opportunities. 

Come along and discover your new start today! 

We will also have food vans in attendance for those in need of some job-seeking fuel – watch this space for announcements.

How to get to the Jobs and Careers Fair 

We’re really looking forward to seeing you here on Campus. The fair is being held at Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology (CAST). There are many ways to get to the Campus and we would encourage you to consider travel sustainably. 

Arrive by park and ride

Our campus is linked with the Cambridgeshire Park and Ride scheme. It’s free to park for up to 18 hours, you just pay for your return. Pricing starts from £3.50; you can plan your journey on their website.

There is currently a temporary reduction in the number of spaces available at Babraham Park & Ride whilst work takes place on a renewable energy project.

Additional capacity is available at Trumpington Park & Ride which allows access to our hospitals via the frequent Busway service or shared cycle/pedestrian path.

Addenbrooke’s Hospital has its own bus station at the Hills Road entrance to the site. The majority of buses pick up and drop off here. There are further stops around the wider biomedical campus.
