Careers Fest

Each year, we run Careers Fest, Oxfordshire’s most exciting careers event.  

Organised by OxLEP Skills’ Oxfordshire Career Hub, Careers Fest returns for 2024 and is set to not only connect young people with some of Oxfordshire’s best employers – but highlight significant career pathways available in the county – with a separate session targeted at parents and carers.  

Careers Fest 2024

Careers Fest will take place on 20 and 21 March 2024 at the Kassam Conference & Events Centre in Oxford (OX4 4XP). Students will be attending during the day with their school.

There will be a ‘twilight’ session for parents and carers on 20 March from 16:30-19:30. All families are welcome but we believe this will be most useful for students in Year 9 and above.

With thanks to our Careers Fest 2024 headline sponsors

Parent at Careers Fest

“I had no idea that so much was available in this area and it’s really incredible to know my four children who I brought with me will have all these opportunities surrounding them. It should almost be a compulsory thing for young teenagers to go to Careers Fest!”
