Join the Leeds Network - be influential

The Leeds Network

Motivate, stimulate, encourage, inspire.

Please join the Leeds Network and share your experience with our students.

There’s no substitute for first-hand accounts of career progression, realistic advice about breaking into a profession or insightful tips for career advancement.

Our students need this sort of boost to get onto, and move up, the career ladder. The Leeds Network puts them in touch with the sort of real-life information they need, from people like you.

Whatever you do and wherever you live, there will be a student or young graduate who will value your insight.

Register as a Leeds Network volunteer if:

  • you would like to answer career-related questions from students by email OR
  • you could provide a one-off profile of your career or career experiences, but would prefer not to be contacted

The Leeds Network is a secure online database of Leeds alumni and access to your profile is restricted to students and recent graduates of Leeds.

Your email address will not be visible in the first instance. Students contact you through the site so will not be able to see your email address until you reply.

Need more information before joining?

What's it like?

"I enjoy hearing from everyone who approaches me – it’s so interesting to hear about their motivations and what inspires them to want to work in the sector. I’ve been impressed (and even intimidated!) by the early focus students have on finding employment, and the extent to which they have sought out relevant experience both in the UK and sometimes overseas."

Charlotte Scawen (MA Conflict, Development and Security 2003)

"Even if your job doesn’t pay highly or you have a family to support, you don’t necessarily need to donate to give something back. Spare some of your time to help fellow alumni - the satisfaction you get, and the help they receive is worth more than money itself."  

Craig Morley (BA Geography 2005)
