 If you're new to Birmingham, why not make a day of it? 

Open Day guests are invited to attend Brumlife, a jobs fair with a twist: not only do you get an introduction to some of the city’s top employers, you also get to find out where the best places are to live, what CSR opportunities you can get involved in, and where’s best to go out to eat and drink! 

You can attend Brumlife anytime from 12:00, making sure you arrive at Aston in time for the Open Day registration. Brumlife is organised by BPS Birmingham Aspire, and you must register here to attend.
