Recruitment Spotlight Events

Our recruitment spotlight series of events are designed to give students an introduction to graduate opportunities from companies across a broad range of sectors. Each event will be employer-led, but designed and delivered exclusively for Durham students in collaboration with Careers & Enterprise. All Recruitment Spotlight events will be recorded and available to you afterwards via DUO. This series is designed to offer a broad and balanced representation of sectors across the Michaelmas term.
