Who’s coming to a campus near you?
Universities are a very important recruitment ground for arms companies, they visit university campuses to recruit students. They have stalls at careers fairs, give presentations and hold individual meetings with students. Each year companies spend money and resources on visiting universities and recruiting students to design, build, market and sell the next generation of killing equipment.
The support given to the arms trade through university participation in arms trade recruitment is therefore a crucial link to break. Arms companies need graduates in order to survive and to do their work; this is a site where we can really hit them where it hurts. There is already a shortage of students wanting to work for arms companies: by taking action against arms companies on campus you will be directly affecting their ability to thrive as weapons producers. Let’s make this year the year we kick arms companies off campus for good!
Many of the recruitment fairs take place at the beginning of the academic year (in October/ November) so make sure you are ready to take action!

Here’s a map of careers fairs over the UK where arms dealers are expected to attend. If you know of a careers fair that we’ve missed out, let us know so we can put it up on the map.
