Regular afternoon events where employers can come onto campus to meet students are being held in the university’s new Elm House building.
The first event was held on 7 March 2023, when employers from over 20 organisations came along to talk to students about the job opportunities they have, from part-time and temporary to full-time graduate positions. This provided hundreds of students with a way to find out about the options available to them locally, and for employers to recruit directly from the students they met.
A range of sectors were represented, including sports, local councils, regulatory, technology, environment, teaching, business and government.
Final-year Economics student, Ashley, said: "It was great to talk to people from different industries and get a better idea of what's out there, I’m looking forward to getting a job with one of these companies after graduation."
