Events for employers
Throughout the year we host a variety of engaging careers events that bring together employers from all industries with our diverse and talented students and graduates. We will work with you to understand your recruitment needs and recommend the recruitment activities that will drive the most value to your business. We have events running both virtually and in person on campus, to ensure that our students and employers can connect in a variety of ways. As an employer, you can get involved in a variety of events including:
Attending a careers fair is a great way to engage with our students to promote your graduate, placement or work experience roles. We have fairs running both virtually and in person on campus depending on the event. Both formats allow employers to have an employer booths to present your organisation and showcase opportunities that are available in your business. You can participate in live group sessions and one-to-one appointments with students. This is an excellent opportunity to spot future talent for your business.
Assessment Centre Experience
Our multi-award winning Assessment Centre Experience (ACE) takes over 3,000 students through the typical graduate assessment centre process. We invite employers to support the event by acting as assessors for the mock interviews and presentations. It’s a great opportunity for employers to network with our students in a professional environment.
ACE received critical acclaim at the 2018 Institute of Student Employer Awards in London, by winning the ‘Best Preparation for Work: Single Initiative Award’, in recognition of the hugely successful assessment simulation.
Delivering a short presentation to a targeted group of students can be very effective in raising your organisations profile with future talent from a particular area of study. You can either deliver a short presentation followed by a question and answer session or pre-record a short presentation that can then be posted on relevant course webpages or showcased to students in our ‘Explore Careers In’ themed weeks.
Taking over our Instagram page gives you exposure to over 1,800 of our students. We’ll dedicate our channel to you, with up to 15 stories posted throughout the day, and content posted that will stay on our channel for students to view at any time. You can also host a live question and answer session with our students through the channel. We have successfully delivered a number of Instagram events and we will guide you through the process.
Assessed projects and competitions
Our students can help you solve real life issues that your business or sector is facing through assessed projects or as part of a competition. We’ll introduce you to our academic colleagues who will work with you to create the project or competition. This is very effective at bringing fresh thinking into your business and helping you to spot future talent.
