All activities are managed in line with our Careers and Employability Advertising Policy (PDF, 174kb)

Below are the opportunities we can offer to engage with our students:

Employer and Alumni in Residence 

Employer in Residence

Employer in Residence sessions are a great way to meet students who are interested in working for your company. They offer you the opportunity raise your profile, share expert advice and answer questions about your organisation and recruitment processes. These sessions currently run either on-campus or virtually and will be hosted on a monthly basis.

The Employer in Residence sessions aim to:

  • Provide students with expert advice from an employer and organisation they are seeking a graduate opportunity from.
  • Allows you to meet with final year students on a one-to-one basis
  • Offer practical support such as advice on preparing for interviews and assessment centres
  • Provide individual feedback to students on CVs, applications, etc.

Dates and programme schedule for 23/24 academic year will be updated. 

The In-Residence sessions are mainly targeted at final year undergraduate students and participating employers must have graduate vacancies available for students to apply for however other student cohorts will be considered depending on the recruiting needs of your organisation.

Please get in touch with us at to discuss how to get involved.

Alumni in Residence

The Alumni in Residence programme brings talented alumni volunteers and University of Leicester students together so that alumni can share their career experiences and advice. Through small networking sessions, the programme is designed to inspire students at the start of their career journeys, support their career development, build their commercial awareness and increase their confidence. If you’re a professional who is interested in supporting and mentoring students by sharing your industry knowledge, insights and experience in an informal environment, we would love to hear from you.
