Students and graduates to meet face-to-face with top employers
Job application The University of Lincoln is holding a Graduate Careers Fair on Wednesday 17 November 2010.

The event will take place at the Engine Shed on the Brayford Pool campus between 11am-3pm.

More than 50 employers are expected to attend, ranging from big name multinationals to up-and-coming regional SMEs.

Organisations that have already confirmed they will be exhibiting at the fair include Siemens, Lindum and the RAF.

Places are still available for employers to attend the fair free of charge. There are opportunities to run exhibition stands or give workshops and presentations.

The Graduate Careers Fair is a chance for companies, charities and public bodies who may be looking to take on graduates in the future to meet face-to-face with the University’s current students, recent graduates and staff.

Students and graduates of other universities are welcome to attend the fair too. There is no need to pre-register and admission is free.

With bustling campuses in Lincoln, Riseholme, Holbeach and Hull, around 10,000 students and 1,200 staff, the University of Lincoln is an institution on the up.

Year-on-year improvements in ranking in national university league tables and continuously improving feedback in the National Student Survey have all contributed to the institution’s growing reputation.

In the past few years, the University has achieved:

• The biggest jump in ranking of any university listed in The Times’ Good University Guide 2011.
• A 620 per cent increase in national research funding.
• The highest possible commendation for academic standards and quality of learning opportunities.

Businesses already reap the benefits of Lincoln’s academic expertise through commissioned research and consultancy work, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and recruitment of highly-skilled and motivated graduates.
