University of Leicester is dedicating a Careers Fair to highlighting job
opportunities for people from different ethnic backgrounds.
University's Careers Service is staging an Ethnic Diversity Careers Fair as part
of Diversity Week, a programme designed to help students from different ethnic
backgrounds in their career choices.
will be the third consecutive year the Fair has been held and this year's event
will feature presentations and exhibits by employers who have been identified as
being pro-active in trying to recruit graduates from ethnic minority groups,
including KPMG, the Army, the NHS,
HSBC and the College of Law.
and Community Liaison Manager Haniel Riviere-Allen said: " Major graduate
recruiters are offering work placements, graduate positions and further
have 26 exhibitors from public and private companies - such is the popularity of
the Fair that we had to refuse some companies that wanted to attend due to
pressure of space. There will be workshops aimed at helping students with
various selection processes- the application process, interview techniques and
competency based application forms."
Week will run over five days from Monday 10th to Friday 14th March and
incorporate a series of workshops including information on job hunting,
management, accountancy, careers abroad and careers for mature students
