Business Futures

We recognise the importance of preparing students for the working environment and have invested heavily in providing the support and opportunities for our students to enhance their graduate employment prospects.

Every student within the Faculty has a designated Employment Personal Tutor (EPT), aligned to their area of study, to work with them throughout their course. All our EPTs have previously worked in industry and have experience of being a recruiter. Because of their experiences, they understand the labour market, the skills employers look for and the processes used by employers to select candidates. Our EPTs work with our students throughout their student journey, from the moment they start their course. They introduce career options, help students understand the skills sought by employers and provide guidance that will help when making work placement and graduate job applications.

The services provided by our EPTs to our students include:

  • One-to-one support 
  • Drop-in CV and application checks 
  • Unique online resources 
  • Skills development workshops 
  • Mock interviews & assessment centres 
  • Support with Psychometric testing 
  • Employer events

The support provided by the EPT complements the more general careers support from the University Careers Service.

Events and Networking

Throughout the year we welcome employers onto campus and run a number of events and activities, examples include:

  • An annual Faculty Employment Fair where approximately 30 organisations attend and speak with our students about their live graduate and work placement opportunities.
  • Employer presentations
  • Guest speakers from a range of industries and sectors
  • Networking events
  • Mentoring initiatives
