During the last week of term I attended a Careers Development talk regarding the Graduate Gateway scheme University of Leicester offers. This is a programme of paid fixed-term and permanent graduate jobs in a variety of areas, usually in SMEs and also in different departments within the University.
This programme is exclusive to University of Leicester Graduates; it will allow you to gain real work experience in a sector you aspire to work in. Some opportunities may last for 3 months or more, allowing you to experience an industry and gain transferable skills. Graduate roles range from working in marketing, education, ICT, engineering and much more. One of the benefits of this scheme is that some short-term opportunities may lead to a permanent role with the company.
If this is something you would like to be involved in, just register your interest here and upload your location preferences and an updated CV. If you still haven’t had a chance to have your CV looked at, make a booking at the Careers Development Service here.
If you are on the look out for other graduate opportunities here are some helpful websites to use:
- Prospectus Graduate job search https://www.prospects.ac.uk/jobs-and-work-experience
- Targetjobs https://targetjobs.co.uk/search/all
- MyCareers https://mycareers.le.ac.uk/home.html
Good Luck with your applications!!
