We hold an exciting annual calendar of employer events at the university which enable you to connect with our students and recent graduates in a variety of ways and at different points of the year.
Get Hired - Spring Jobs Fair - Tuesday 22nd May 2018
The Get Hired - Spring Jobs Fair is ideally placed for you to meet students and promote opportunities starting in the spring or summer months. The timing of this fair appeals to students who are job ready and keen to take their next steps after finishing the academic year.
We welcome a wide range of organisations on to campus with live graduate vacancies, placement opportunities or part-time summer work available. Our Spring Jobs Fair is the last fair of the academic year, so it’s the final chance to come on to campus and meet our students before they graduate or start their summer break.
Our Careers Fairs 2018-19
Part-time Jobs Fair - September 2018 - date TBC
Our Part-time Jobs Fair is a great chance to meet students looking for flexible part-time work that fits around their studies. We have huge demand from students looking for part-time work and the fair provides an opportunity to connect these students with opportunities in your organisation. The fair takes place during Welcome Week so is ideally placed to meet both new students and those returning to campus.
Get into Teaching Fair - October 2018 - date TBC
Teaching is a popular career path for many of our students and this fair offers an excellent opportunity to meet with those interested in a career in teaching. At this event, we host a number of teacher training providers, who can give expert advice on the different routes available into teaching. We also welcome organisations who can help students to gain experience in working with young people.
Graduate and Placements Fair - October 2018 - date TBC
Our annual Graduate and Placements Fair is a fantastic opportunity to meet talented Leeds Beckett students from all disciplines and year groups. It’s the ideal chance to find students who are a great fit for your graduate and placement roles all in one place, maximising your time on campus at a key point in the graduate recruitment calendar.
We host a great mix of employers at the fair, from national and global employers to small and medium organisations from across the region and beyond. Our students have a diverse range of career aspirations, so we welcome employers from a wide range of sectors with a variety of graduate and placement opportunities.
Spotlight On...Careers networking sessions
Our ‘Spotlight on’ series aims to showcase career opportunities within a particular sector, or type of work, in an informal setting. We invite 25-30 students and ask employers to sit on a Q&A panel to share their knowledge and experiences.
In 2016-17 we hosted sessions on working in Financial Services, Marketing, Retail, Hospitality, Local Government, Emergency Services, Media and Recruitment Consultancy.
Our first Spotlights of 2017-18 will be hosted in collaboration with the Student and Graduate Futures Team.
Spotlight on Careers in Digital Marketing (November)
Spotlight on the Retail World - Sector insights and graduate opportunities (December)
Jobs Market Place
Our Jobs Market Place events provide an opportunity to host an information stand at either our City or Headingley Campus. These stands are a great way to raise the profile of your organisation and promote your opportunities to our students. You will be provided with a space in an area of good footfall and we will promote your stand to students in advance of your visit. We can tailor this to target the courses best suited to your organisation. Our Jobs Market Place events run throughout the academic year.
To register your interest in any of our events or for more information about the services we can provide, please contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0113 812 3190.
