We strive to work together with our industry partners to understand your individual recruitment needs and help you to meet your business objectives through our talent pool.

The Employability and Careers Centre works with a range of employer partners to provide you with students who have the skills, attributes and mindset that your organisation will need to meet the challenges facing tomorrow’s workforce.

How can we help your organisation to recruit the greatest talent?

  • The University is renowned for its consistently outstanding employment record, with 93 per cent graduate employability after six months (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey 2016).
