Yorkshire Graduate Employer of the Year Awards
Thursday, September 6, 2012 at 7:00 PM - Friday, September 7, 2012 at 12:00 AM (BST)
Leeds, United Kingdom
About the awards
The awards are to celebrate the commitment shown to the personal and professional development of graduates, by graduate employers across Yorkshire and The Humber. The awards will reflect the contributions made to graduate employment by the region's organisations, large and small.
The awards ceremony is a glamorous affair held at Anthony’s Piazza, set in the stunning surroundings of the Corn Exchange, Leeds. We begin with a stylish drinks reception where you can network over a Yorkshire cocktail, then we feast upon a scrumptious three course meal before moving onto the main event- the awards! The night is topped off with live music (locally sourced of course) and further networking opportunities.
We're pleased to be able to announce the awards short list! Competiton this year was very tough which shows the dedication of the region's employers to recruting and developing graduates.
