Connect with Employers

The WRIPA team connects you with employers throughout the year. We organise the only annual physics-focused recruitment fair for undergraduates in the country, providing the opportunity for you to meet with potential employers. Also we co-ordinate workplace visits and talks from companies and university physics alumni who are now working in technical sectors.

Careers Fair

WRIPA, Physics, careers, York University, Ron Cook Hub,

We organise the annual Physics Industry Recruitment and Placement Fair, which is the largest physics-focused careers event in the UK. The event successfully ran virtually in 2020 and the 2021 fair will take place in a similar format. Attendance at the fair is the best way to meet employers and explore career opportunities in sectors from aerospace engineering and nuclear energy to scientific consultancy and software development.

Employer Talks

We regularly invite companies to your physics department to talk about their work. These 30-minute sessions are an ideal way to get a quick overview of careers within a certain sector.
