What’s in it for you?

The 2019 STEM Fair attracted over 2,900 students and we expect over 3,000 in 2020. This event will provide a fantastic opportunity for employers to have face to face interactions with students from the Faculties of Biological Sciences, Engineering Physical Sciences and Environment.

Employers will have the chance to network and talk to students interested in Placement Years, Summer Internships and Graduate Positions. 

The Fair is heavily advertised through:

  • Targeted emails to students
  • An advertising banner outside the Refectory (daily footfall of over 12,000)
  • Word of mouth through the Careers Centre staff and colleagues within faculties
  • Adverts on the student portal of the University
  • Adverts on the graduate portal targeting 2020 graduates
  • Lecture shouts
  • Supporting work with societies
  • Promotion on the Leeds Career Fair Plus App
  • Posts on numerous University of Leeds social media platforms

On the day
Employers attending the event will receive:

  • Lunch and refreshments for 3 reps (you are welcome to bring more staff but only 3 are included in the price)
  • Liquid refreshments throughout the day - don't forget to bring your reusable water bottle and coffee cup
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Table and 2 chairs if required
  • A 3m wide by 2m deep floor area for a standard stand space. Do speak to us if you feel your stand requires more space than this as bespoke packages can be arranged.
