Our Services

Tab Content: Promote your organisation

We have a range of simple ways to attract students and our alumni to your business and your vacancies. From student projects to campus presentations and guest lectures, our opportunities will help you find the right candidates. Please contact us to discuss these options further.

Sponsor a student project

Sometimes employers use the Consultancy Challenge and Corporate Challenge projects to introduce their companies to students as a precursor to considering a more permanent role. The arrangement gives each party an excellent opportunity to assess suitability, fit, cultural match and career potential. Many students in the past have received full-time offers of work from their sponsor organisations following a successful project.

Project sponsors should note that being in a position to offer a job following a project is not a prerequisite for sponsoring a student team – all that is required is an interesting brief requiring consultancy by Masters-level students who already have at least three years' work experience.

Campus Presentations

One of the most effective ways to encourage applications is to visit the Lancaster campus and present information on your career opportunities. We normally schedule presentations at 6.00pm in the MBA lecture theatre. You can choose to host a short drinks or buffet reception afterwards.

Campus Interviews

Interviewing students on campus has many advantages: you can shortlist, interview and select quickly and efficiently, saving time and money. LUMS provides interview and test facilities and can handle much of the administration on your behalf.

Workshops and Guest Lectures

Participating in a careers or skills workshop or contributing to a guest lecture is a proven way of raising your company's profile, and at the same time you know that you're providing tangible benefits to our students. We can arrange practical employer-led workshops for our students on CV writing, interview technique, assessment centres, online applications, presentation skills and many other topics.
