The University of Leicester supports employers to build a talent pipeline and identify future employees. An award-winning service, ranked among top 25 UK universities targeting by leading employers for 2019, they recognise the requirements and needs of each organisation and work in partnership. They advise on strategies to attract both students and graduates by engaging with curriculum content, raising profile and awareness amongst the target audience and managing recruitment processes.

A number of their programmes offer Year in Industry opportunities for undergraduates and postgraduates. This is a fantastic opportunity to bring innovation and new ideas into your business, whilst helping their students gain valuable experience. They offer a recruitment solution, allowing you to fill a skills gap or vacancies without any long-term commitment and giving you the chance to identify future talent before they hit the job market. Resource can be devoted to specific projects or support ongoing activity, whilst bringing the latest academic thinking into your workplace. During a Year in Industry, employers and students continue to be supported by the University, to ensure it is a hugely rewarding and enriching experience for all. Their students have undertaken roles in small to multi-national organisations operating in the private, public and third-sector, locally, nationally and internationally.

Alongside the Year in Industry they also support employers to offer, summer internships, work related projects and graduate opportunities.
