Meet our students at a careers event

Connecting with our community at a careers event is a great way to raise your profile and provide our students and graduates with their first step into a new career.

Throughout the year, we work with our employer partners to help connect you to our student and graduates. Our events and programmes provide an opportunity to:

  • Share your roles
  • Raise your company profile
  • Network with future talent

We work flexibly to adapt to the needs and timescales of employers, so whilst we have dates in the diary for our larger scale events and programmes, we continue to develop and add to these throughout the year.

Currently, our September to December events will take place online. We’ll continue to review this throughout the academic year to ensure we make events accessible for our employer partners and our students and graduates.

To register your interest in any of our events or for more information about the services we can provide, please contact our team at employers@leedsbeckett.ac.uk or telephone 0113 812 3190.
