Attend the event on Friday 28 May

Industrial placements are an excellent way to apply what you’ve studied to solve real-world commercial problems and take part in innovative projects. From revamping marketing and sales strategies to developing new technologies and everything in between, businesses of all sizes are eager for you to bring fresh ideas, new perspectives, unique expertise and personal insight to their operations.

From smaller, early-stage businesses to global market leaders including Microsoft, IBM, Jaguar land Rover, ASOS, GlaxoSmithKline, PricewaterhouseCoopers and the NHS, University of Leicester students have completed industrial placements; gaining experience, insight and improved career prospects, all whilst earning an average £16,000 - £21,000 for the year.

If all of this excites you, please join Innovation Hub Team and hear from students who have spent a year in industry and the companies they worked with including award-winning software development company Draycir and communications giant BT on Friday 28th May between 9:30 and 11:00 at the ‘New Talent, New Insights’ Innovation Friday event.

Learn about the benefits of placements from representatives of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICEAW) and Innovate UK and begin plotting a roadmap to beginning your journey with guidance from current University of Leicester staff and students.

The event is free, open to all current and recently graduated University of Leicester students, academics from all disciplines and will also be attended by local, national and international businesses providing you an opportunity to network and discover future collaboration opportunities.

Begin your own journey into the world of industry beginning on 28th May at the ‘New Talent, New Insights’ Innovation Friday event.
