Statement of service for employers

Our Employer Service Offer


The University provides a high quality customer-focused service to all employers seeking to engage with our students to meet their business needs.

This includes a comprehensive portfolio of services to help you raise your profile on campus, enabling you to connect with, attract and employ our talented students. The University of Leeds’ strength comes from its world-class research and teaching that attracts diverse range of talented students, but we understand that can make it difficult to know where to start. This is where we can help! To help you connect with the right students and graduates for your business, we work with colleagues from across all departments of the University. 


Advertising Service

You can advertise your opportunities, subject to our approval, on our online vacancy system for free. This will make your vacancies and opportunities visible to all 38,000 students and over 20,000 recent graduates.

We can also offer help with a targeted campaign and have lots of cost-effective packages to help you attract the right candidates.

Placement and Internships

We can:

  • advertise your placements and internships to students and graduates
  • work with you to design new work experience programmes which benefit your organisation and support your recruitment campaign
  • help you target students from subject areas of particular relevance to your business
  • Create exclusive placement and internship programmes with your organisation. This can include targeted promotion, collation of applications, batch sending them to you in advance of your deadline and also assistance with interviews.

Careers Fairs

Careers fairs are the ideal opportunity to meet our students face to face and these are well attended by students from all year groups. We have a range of general and sector specific fairs across the academic year to support the promotion of your opportunities, and to enable you to meet our students and headhunt talent. 

Please note that 21/22 Semester 1 fairs will be delivered virtually using our dedicated virtual career fair platform.  

Targeted events exclusively for you

We offer bespoke events throughout the year to suit the requirements of your organisation. Hosting a virtual or an event on campus will raise your profile with a specific audience who we feel would be interested in your brand, work experience opportunities and graduate roles. These events could include hosting a company presentation, delivering a skills session or creating links with the Students Union for promotional stands on campus.

Facilitate links to academic and specialist subject areas and student societies

We can help you to make contacts in academic faculties, subject areas and student societies relevant to your business needs to help you attract the right talent. 

Digital Marketing

We understand that your online presence is a very important part of your recruitment strategy. We can work with you to support your online campaigns across a range of social media platforms including our popular Instagram Employer takeovers. 


Our sponsorship offers are tailored to enhance the profile of your organisation. You can sponsor key events, high-profile institutional awards and student societies. Our Employer Engagement Team can recommend the best option for you and your business.
