Spring Term Virtual Events

We have redefined what campus engagement at the University of Liverpool looks like for our employer partners. Despite many changes, we will continue to provide a platform to enable meaningful connections between employers and our students.

CareerConnect On-demand

In spring 2021, we are focusing heavily on curating on-demand content for our students to enable them to benefit from our employer connections at a time that is convenient for them. From an employers perspective, this approach is light-touch and enables us to promote your organisation and opportunities to students.

To get involved, you can send us a short (1-2min) 'Recruiter Recording' with a targeted message for our students. See examples here

You can also send us links to existing video content which we will include in our CareerConnect On-demand offer. Contact us to get involved.

Host Your Own Virtual Event

We appreciated that this spring, many employers and recruiters are hosting their own virtual activity to engage students To complement this approach we will be coordinating a virtual programme of new employer-led remote events to help recruiters remain visible amongst students and to showcase roles available for 2021 and 2022. 

This will include a series of live webinars, social media takeovers, virtual office tours, practice video and telephone interviews, live case studies, live Q&A chats, and many other creative initiatives to engage future talent during such challenging times. 

Any activity you already have scheduled can be included in our #VirtualConnect programme as well as tailored and bespoke activities that we can plan together. 

Contact us to get involved. 

Diversity Initiatives

In autumn 2020, we launched the Unlock your Potential (UP) Programme to level the playing field in as many ways possible for students from under-represented groups.  UP offers enhanced careers and employability support to students who choose to opt into the programme.

We host a range of employer-led virtual events and initiatives as part of UP, including virtual panel events, the Career Confidence for Women programme, targeted interactive workshops and a new Male Employability Network. We also promote other relevant diversity and inclusion events to registered students via the programme.  

Getting involved provides the perfect opportunity for you to promote your opportunities to an engaged and diverse talent pool and to raise your profile as an inclusive employer.

If you are interested in engaging with our UP students, contact Grace.Berry@liverpool.ac.uk

Inspired Futures

In spring 2021, we will be hosting an Inspired Futures programme to showcase to students how the pandemic can provide an opportunity for an innovative future. This will include a series of insight podcasts by speakers from sectors that are thriving, and also those that may have had to change their practices during the coronavirus crisis. To find out more about how you can get involved, contact Jade.Mcgee@liverpool.ac.uk


Employers are invited to host a live, interactive workshop as part of our CareerConnect prgoramme for spring 21. These sessions will be focused on helping students practice and develop their skills needed to successfully compete in remote recruitment processes. To find out more about how you can get involved, please contact jforster@liverpool.ac.uk

Targeted Events in Academic Departments

We work closely with colleagues across our three faculties, Health & Life Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences and Science and Engineering, to engage employers in targeted activity for students from specific areas of study. We do this by bringing real world insight and experiences into the curriculum as well as via an extensive range of extra-curricular initiatives. Contact us to find out more.
