Meet our students

Recruitment fairs and employer events

Careers fairs and events are a great way for graduate and placement recruiters to meet our students. Careers fairs allow you to stand out from the many employers who are also trying to recruit for their graduate and placement roles. Many organisations use careers fairs as a chance to talent spot and fast-track students with potential through their application processes.

The fair is open to organisations of any size who are looking to recruit students or graduates. 

All of our employer events are virtual for the next few months. Our Graduate Recruitment and Placement Virtual Fair takes place on Friday 29 October 2021


This is a free event for organisations who recruit graduates or offer placements, internships and volunteering opportunities. It is a chance for you to raise awareness of your brand and opportunities amongst our diverse student and graduate population. Book here, or for more information contact

For any questions about the fair or if you are looking to recruit students before the fair, please get in touch to discuss how we can support you

Networking events

We encourage businesses of all sizes and from all sectors to network and share ideas and contacts. To facilitate this, we run events throughout the year, in addition to supporting initiatives delivered by the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce and the Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP).

If you are interested in attending a networking event on campus, complete the expression of interest form below and we will add you to our mailing list.

Presentations and workshops

We welcome employers to DMU for presentations, workshops and skills sessions. Students value hearing about your company first hand, which can in turn raise awareness of your recruitment campaigns.

In workshops and skills sessions you can help students with advice, role play and practical exercises.

We can:

  • Arrange a venue on campus
  • Provide audio-visual equipment
  • Promote your talk to DMU students using a variety of channels and targeted publicity - to specific subjects or years of study, if required
  • Arrange interview and briefing rooms

Presentations, workshops and skill session topics might include placement opportunities, CV writing, applying online, interview techniques, telephone interviews and assessment centres.

Please contact us and we will be happy to help you plan your event.
