Spotlight On

These sessions help our students to find out what it’s like to work in a particular job or industry. You can provide insight into your job, sector and career path while imparting expertise on how to be successful during the recruitment process.

We hold around 50 events each year covering a wide range of sectors from sustainability to magazine publishing and from insurance to science careers beyond the lab.

If you would like to share your knowledge and experience with our students, we'd really like to hear from you.

Skills workshops

These sessions focus on enhancing skills for the workplace.

Here's some examples of workshops that employers have delivered but you could suggest another skill area that you feel is important in the world of work. 

  • Presentation skills
  • Commercial awareness
  • Leadership skills
  • Personal branding

Nottingham Advantage Award

The Nottingham Advantage Award is an accredited employability programme for undergraduates and postgraduates which allows them to gain recognition for extracurricular activities.

Our involvement directly affects the quality of the graduate pool coming to the employment market by sharing our expertise, and raises our profile on campus as the graduate recruiter of choice.
