I have recently joined the careers team as the Employer Services Manager. My role involves developing strong and sustainable relationships with employers, sourcing relevant placement, internship and graduate opportunities for students. I have a team of opportunities assistants who work directly with students, supporting them with employability skills as well as signposting to relevant support services. The team also work with employers to source appropriate opportunities for students.

I have previously worked in the private sector on employability contracts which were all aimed at supporting clients into sustainable employment. My roles have revolved around employer engagement, with an emphasis on building strong and consistent employer accounts and sourcing exclusive and achievable job opportunities. I have most recently been involved in setting up an employability contract in the Republic of Ireland. I managed a team of personal advisers who supported long term unemployed individuals to overcome significant barriers and enter full time employment.

I am looking forward to working in a Higher Education environment and supporting students to achieve their career goals.
