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 market and established 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, so 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 develop their careers. With a strong set of employability skills and Changemaker attributes, a Northampton graduate has a secure base for the start of their career and onwards. 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.

For full details of how we can work together, see what opportunities are available for working with The University and its students and to read what other employers have to say about us please download our brochure or contact us at changemakerhub@northampton.ac.uk.

We can also support your workforce development with our Higher and Degree Apprenticeships. These programmes have been specifically designed with industry to respond to high level skills gaps, bringing together the very best in higher and vocational education. Our apprenticeships will enable your employees to study for a higher level qualification and gain professional recognition, while applying their learning to your real-world projects in the workplace. If you think degree apprenticeships can help shape the future of your business, please get in touch. Find out more.
