Leeds City Council, Graduate Programme (two-years)
I also initiated an alumni communications strategy by launching Facebook and Linkedin groups for graduates.
Laura Driver returned to Leeds Trinity University on Friday 21 November 2014 to deliver a seminar on the Leeds City Council Graduate Programme as part of our Enterprise & Employability week.
How is the Graduate Programme going?It is really positive. I'm getting lots of good experience working in a developmental role, including working with other graduates like myself.
How does it feel to return to Leeds Trinity?It doesn't seem like I've been away, it still feels very similar. I felt I was really supported here and liked the size of the University. I agree with the philosophy that at Leeds Trinity – you're a name not a number.
What are your favourite memories of studying here?I loved the history trips, most were based locally but they were always very interesting. In particular I remember an early trip to Kirkstall Abbey. I also initiated an alumni communications strategy by launching Facebook and Linkedin groups for graduates. I began this during a six-week professional work placement and continued to work with the Careers and Employability team for a further year and a half on alumni and other projects. This experience was essential for being accepted on the graduate programme.
What three words come to mind when thinking about Leeds Trinity?Challenging, engaging and enjoyable.
