We hold an exciting annual calendar of events at the university which enable you to connect with our students and recent graduates in a variety of ways, at different points of the year.
The Employer Engagement team has the flexibility to ensure we can deliver the most effective event to suit your business needs; whether you are recruiting for a small number of bespoke positions, to a large number of graduate roles.
Individual opportunities on campus
Our team can facilitate an individual visit on campus for you to meet with our students, either at our City campus or Headingley campus, at any point during the academic year.
We can offer free space for you to hold an exhibitor stand, and a seminar room for you to give a talk or workshop, and ensure your visit is promoted in advance to the cohort of students you are hoping to recruit. You could also use your opportunity to visit our campuses to deliver a mock interview or assessment centre; mentor our students; hold a CV workshop or a LinkedIn workshop. Our team of consultants will be able to guide you on the most effective use of your time on campus.
