Following on from the annual conference in Birmingham, PlaceNet is offering a FREE Master Class Event for Members featuring insights into some of the key trends and initiatives occurring within UK Universities around the placement and employability agenda. The event will take place at the beautiful campus of the University of York.


This event is aimed at placement and employability professionals and will provide an excellent follow up to the annual conference and a further opportunity to network with colleagues from around the country and share best practice.

We will have a range of experts from across HE and graduate recruitment, including a range of speakers form the award winning Careers Network at the University of Birmingham discussing a variety of their initiatives, FDM Group (Winners of Diversity in Recruitment Target Job Award 2016) giving an employers’ perspective and DMU Global from De Montfort University talking about their large scale international placements schemes.
