The Employer Engagement Team (EET), within Careers and Employability, is responsible for engaging with employers and recruiters in order to develop and maintain effective relationships with them, with academic colleagues and with University of Chester students and graduates. The team is made up of experienced individuals, whose primary aim is to be proactive in facilitating interactions which enable organisations and individuals to develop and fulfil their potential.

Employer Pathways, our approach to employer engagement, was introduced with the purpose of enabling us to deliver a high standard of service to all the employers we work with, at a level of engagement which meets their requirements and to progress our relationships as appropriate, i.e. at an Associate or Partner level.

Partner Employers

Partner Employers are those organisations who wish to engage in our employability-enhancing activities with our students and graduates.

Each Partner Employer is assigned to a dedicated member of the Employer Engagement Team and their account is effectively managed through meetings at mutually agreed intervals, in order to ensure that the requirements of both parties are met.

Partner Employers can advertise their vacancies to all our students and graduates, at no cost, on our CareerHub system.

Employer Case Studies

Associate Employers

Associate Employers are those organisations whose requirements are entirely met by advertising their employment opportunities, including Workplace Experience internships, to our students and graduates, on our free-to-use CareerHub system.

NB: we are keen to actively support employers who wish to progress from being an Associate Employer to a Partner Employer, through the development of strong employer partnerships.
