Volunteer from work

Inspire our students by showing them a snapshot of your industry. Students are incredibly keen to hear your valuable advice which can help them kick-start their career.

Internships and placements

An internship or placement equips students with the skills, insight and experience to boost their employability and increases their confidence as they start their careers. By offering an internship or a placement year, you could help them develop transferable skills and grow their network for their future.

Most students can undertake a paid placement year working for 9 to 12 months as part of their degree between their second and third year.

The University also manages many exclusive internship programmes for Leeds students running for 8 to 12 weeks usually over the summer.

To find out more, please email or upload your placement and internship vacancy online.

A day in the work place

If you are unable to offer a longer period of work experience, hosting a small group of students in your work place for a day might be more suitable for you. This will enable the students to gain fantastic insight, broaden their networks and give them the opportunity to ask questions to industry professionals.

If this is something you may be interested in, please contact Alumni Volunteering.

Graduate employment

If you have graduate roles available within your organisation, you can advertise them directly to Leeds students through the Careers Centre. Use this form to upload job details.

The Careers Centre also hosts several recruitment fairs and events throughout the year. These are a great way to raise awareness of your organisation and meet potential applicants.

You can find out full details of upcoming fairs on the Careers Centre website.
