With fifty-seven of the UK's one hundred leading employers recruiting fewer graduates than in 2019 or hiring no graduates at all in 2020, we need to look to the future for our 2021 graduates and the labour market they will be entering. How can we help and prepare students to secure a meaningful career?
We are excited to welcome an expert panel to discuss how the changing world of work will be affecting universities and their students in 2021 and beyond.
Our panellists are all experts in the graduate labour market and are ready to answer the difficult questions facing upcoming graduates heading out into the work force.
