Employer events

Regent’s popular Business Reveal Events allow organisations to interact with our students and alumni, or even a mixed audience of choice.

They can also offer recruiters a chance to meet, present to and even interview from a self-selecting group of interested people to find the best fit candidate for their business.

Building awareness of your organisation with our student and alumni networks in this way will help you attract top talent, as well as inform candidates’ knowledge and preparation to succeed in your field. By the same token, the networking that usually follows could be just the place where you make useful connections from among our other professional guests.

Become a mentor

Experience the rewarding and career enhancing possibilities of mentoring one of our postgraduate students.

Established in 2009, the Regent’s Mentoring Programme matches experienced Alumni and Senior Executive friends of the University to individually mentor our postgraduate students. Mentors and Mentees commit to a year-long partnership during which they expect to learn valuable new perspectives from each other. Often as not, it creates a ‘win-win’ as participants exchange current generation customer and technology insights for the career-honed soft skills and executive wisdom of older experience.

The current impressive pool of Mentors numbers over 200 and includes senior managers from numerous organisations who support the initiative for both personal and leadership development. We warmly welcome new recruits and although mentoring itself is voluntary, there are several popular benefits including invitations to Regent's exclusive lectures and networking events in our stunning Central London location.

If you or your organisation would like to benefit from participation in this programme, please contact the Alumni Relations team [email protected] or call +44 (0)20 7487 7792.
