NBS centre for enterprise and employability – information for prospective employers

The NBS Centre for Enterprise and Employability promotes a wide range of activities to help students enhance their employability.

Employability is a set of attributes, skills and knowledge that all labour market participants should possess to ensure they have the capability of being effective in the workplace – to the benefit of themselves, their employer and the wider economy (CBI and NUS, 2011).

Effective engagement with employers is of particular importance to Northampton Business School and our students. It is through the interaction with employers that students are able to develop their work based skills, gain knowledge and become ready for the world of work.

It’s not just the students who benefit from this collaboration. As an employer you will be tapping into a pool of enthusiastic, energetic people who are passionate about their subject area and will form tomorrow’s workforce.

There are plenty of ways local businesses and business leaders can engage with the University of Northampton’s Business School, including:

  • be a visiting lecturer
  • be an interviewer in a mock interview
  • be a host organisation for a student visit
  • be a provider of work experience opportunities
  • be an employer of students as part time employees
  • be a provider of a short summer placement
  • be a provider of a 12 month, full time placement
