Bright Futures - Student Groups

The University of Leicester's Careers Service has supported the Bright Futures society since their launch in autumn 2008, working in collaboration to support links with employers and the success of achieving its aims.

Bright Futures Society

The University of Leicester’s Bright Futures society aims to maximise students’ employability skills through collaboration with industry. It is run by students for students, to help them enhance their CVs and land their dream job once they graduate. The societies help students network with employers, develop their career plans, be enterprising and acquire the type of skills employers are looking for in graduates.

Bright Futures Societies are run by students on campuses across the UK, in collaboration with the central Bright Futures network. Bright Futures has student-run societies in 48 British universities, with a total membership of over 17,000 students. They work with dozens of different employers such as PWC, Network Rail, Cancer Research UK and Npower.

Bright Futures is supported by one of the UK’s leading graduate recruitment experts. The organisation provides the opportunity for tenacious and career-driven university students to take proactive steps to invest in their own non-academic development.

In April 2012, the society was recognised with the ‘Careers Service Collaboration’ Award in the Bright Futures 'Making the Difference' Awards due to the strong working relationship between the society and the Careers Service of the university. The ceremony was held at Nottingham University. In 2015 they were also nominated for the 'Enterprise Group of the Year Award' at the University of Leicester Student Awards 2015.

What employers think of Bright Futures

The ‘Careers Service Collaboration’ Award recognises the importance of working well with the University's own careers team to provide the best possible service for students. Leicester Bright Futures scooped the prize for their ‘fantastic and consistent’ collaboration with the University of Leicester Career Development Service.
