With a pro-active approach to student and graduate engagement, you will develop initiatives to enhance employability prospects and inspire broad cohorts to engage with the Careers Service. You will also have a specialism in providing support for PGT students and be responsible for running events across the University for that specific cohort of students.

Initially working as part of the Leeds University Business School team, you will deliver high quality careers information, advice, and guidance to students and graduates in all faculties through online and face to face sessions for individuals and groups. You will support the development and delivery of curriculum career development modules, working closely with academics. You will be expected to manage competing priorities, and to build professional relationships with key colleagues in the business school and with employer partners. Further, you will be expected to work innovatively, collaboratively, and flexibly, within a culture of continuous improvement.
