Industry Insights

Increase your talent pool by hosting an Industry Insight. Give top City students the opportunity to explore a range of industries and sectors that interest them.

Industry Insights are a series of off-campus events, held throughout the year. Companies host a group of students and give them a structured Insight into their sector. Each Industry Insight event will be designed and organised by the Employer Engagement team (EET) in partnership with the host organisation.

EET handles all the advertising, promoting and recruiting for Industry Insights events. Students apply via City's online careers portal, where they will be asked to complete an application form specific to your company. Accepted students will be offered the opportunity to attend an Insight day at your organisation.

Why should you offer an Industry Insight?

  • Raise awareness of your corporate brand at City
  • Meet our excellent undergraduate talent pool
  • No cost opportunity to promote your internship, placement and graduate opportunities
  • Work collaboratively with City to find trends in graduate data to create future interventions on campus

What does an Industry Insight consist of?
