Employer Engagement

Here at The University of Northampton, we’re committed to using our academic expertise, industry connections and our student and staff passion to work with the business community to support both the start-up and continued operation of successful business, locally, nationally and across the globe.

We have a variety of ways in which we can work with your business to help you achieve your goals. We know that you don’t want a one-size-fits-all approach when working with our student and graduate talent. Our award winning Changemaker Hub team will work with you to understand your business needs and how we can best meet them together.

We are committed to developing graduates who are not only qualified to get their first graduate job but who have also developed the skills and attributes they need to progress onward as their career develops. With a strong set of employability skills, a graduate has a secure base for any career changes in the future. At Northampton both Employability and Changemaker are embedded in the curriculum and this is further supported by the extensive range of extra and co-curricular initiatives to enhance students’ employability and social entrepreneurship skills.

Your business is important to us and there’s endless potential to work with The University of Northampton’s students, graduates and staff. Whether you’re looking to advertise a vacancy, attend a recruitment fair, provide work experience, placement or internship opportunities, explore your graduate recruitment needs or become a mentor to our students, there are ways in which we can help.
