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.
Our Careers Fairs 2020-21
Build your Experience Fair - Wednesday 30th September & Thursday 1st October 2020 - Virtual event
Our Build your Experience Fair is designed to help students gain work experience and develop their professional skills. It provides a great opportunity to connect with our students to share your part-time jobs, short-term placements or volunteering roles. The fair takes place at the start of the academic year so is ideally placed to meet both new students and those returning to campus
Graduate and Placements Fair - Tuesday 13th October to Thursday 15th October 2020 - Virtual event
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 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.
Get into Teaching Event - This will be delivered as part of our Graduate and Placements Fair - Virtual event
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.Built Environment and Engineering Careers Fair - Autumn 2020
At this school-specific event, you'll have the chance to meet students from a range of industry disciplines including Architectural Technology, Construction, Engineering and Surveying. It's an ideal opportunity to recruit for your graduate, placement and part-time roles.
Get Hired - Spring Jobs Fair - Spring 2021
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.
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.
The themes of these sessions vary each year. We have previously hosted sessions on working in a number of areas, including Finance and Data Analysis, Retail, Public Service, Digital and Tech, Third Sector, Working with Young People, and Social Media, Marketing & PR Careers.
Campus Careers Events
Please note that these events are currently on hold for 2020.
Our Campus Careers 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.
In light of the current Covid-19 situation, we are reviewing our events programme for academic year 2020/21 to ensure we can deliver activity both safely and effectively. Working with employers is an essential part of our student offer and we will be offering a range of ways to engage with our students over the coming months.
