The ACFF Careers Fair has attracted interest from many corporations; to date, 50 mainstream companies are exhibiting, showing a commitment to diversity and plurality in the workforce.

Champion sponsors playing a pivotal role in the success of the Careers Fair are Bankers Trust, CitiBank, JP Morgan, the Post Office, the Commission of Racial Equality (CRE) and Midland Bank.

Other sponsors are Coca-Cola, Goldman Sachs, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Shell, Choice 96.9FM, and "The Independent" and "The Voice" newspapers.

There will be a variety of exhibitors' stands for graduates to visit, including Price Waterhouse, McDonald's, the Royal Air Force, Ford Motor Company and HM Prison Service.

Major corporate involvement ensures that organisations are aware of the rich potential of graduates who remain under-represented in the workforce. The common reason for many of the companies exhibiting at the ACFF fair is, as Price Waterhouse declared, "... to recruit and develop the best and brightest candidates with full regard to equal opportunity issues".
