Employers targeting Russell Group graduates

Russell Group graduates are highly sought after by employers, both nationally and internationally.The benefits of a Russell Group education are recognised by many graduate employers, who as a result directly target our universities in their recruitment activities.

Our universities invest heavily in their careers services which offer a wide range of services for students and graduates including individual advice sessions, events, careers fairs and internships and work experience programmes. Looking at just one example of many, the University of Leeds offers a wide range of support services for employers looking to recruit its graduates. These include a number of sector-specific recruitment fairs, including:

  • Bright Sparks Fair – a chance to meet numerate students, hosted by the School of Mathematics
  • Expo Fair – an interactive day of talks and workshops aimed at Faculty of Arts students looking for an inspirational career
  • Bioscience Networking Event – an opportunity for employers to meet enthusiastic bioscience students and raise awareness of career opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere
  • Careers... Making a Difference Fair – attracts around 1,500 students from all disciplines who want to work in non-profit making, ethical and voluntary jobs, or in the public sector.
