Welcome to the Career Development Service
Consistently ranked amongst Britain’s top-20 leading universities, the University of Leicester is re-defining what a university can be in the 21st century. Alongside high quality research and excellent teaching, we’re leading the way in providing students, from all backgrounds, with access to high quality education: we’re proud to be the only UK top 20 university (as ranked by the Times Good University Guide, the Guardian University Guide and the Complete University Guide) to meet government benchmarks for inclusivity for students from state schools and lower socio-economic groups.
We know about great leaders too. Yes, we recently unearthed the remains of King Richard III in a Leicester car park, but we’ve been uncovering strong leaders for years.
Who are the leaders we speak of?
Our graduates, of course. Not only have they benefited from a first class education from a leading university, but they also bring transferrable skills and the practical experience required to be a success in the workplace. Here in the Career Development Service, and right across the University, we recognise that employability skills are not skills that would be good for our students to have but rather a must-have for each student .Our job is to make sure that our graduates have the support and guidance necessary to ensure that they are employment-ready the moment they graduate.
