Employer Engagement

Our Employer Engagement team can connect you to a talent pool of thousands of students and recent graduates, from over 125 courses.
 
Our graduating students have benefited from innovative learning techniques, and from expert teachers with relevant industry experience.  Many have completed work placements as part of their studies, giving them hands on experience in their specialist area and up-to-date industry knowledge.  A large number of our courses are also accredited by leading professional bodies.
 
You can engage with our final year students in a number of ways.
 
Careers Fairs and Events 

We have an active calendar of employer-led events in the academic year where you can discuss the opportunities on offer at your company with our students.  These include our annual careers fair, sector-specific fairs and frequent time slots at both our City and Headingley campuses to hold an individual stand and present to students.
 
There are also more in-depth activities that we hold including our ‘Spotlight On’ series and Creative and Digital Careers Week, which offer you the chance to network and offer practical advice to those interested in your industry.
 
For more information about what is coming up and to register your interest in attending an event, please see our employer events
