The Employer Engagement Team (EET), within Careers and Employability, is the specialist group of staff dedicated solely to providing services to employers and is responsible for facilitating interactions between employers, students, graduates and academics.  

The team is made up of experienced individuals and is the first point of contact for employer enquiries.  The team also works closely with University of Chester colleagues from our Work Based Learning, Business Growth Programmes and Commercial Operations departments. 

The EET manages and delivers the following services:

  • Employers in the Curriculum 
  • Employer in the Foyer Events 
  • Employer Insights
  • Get a Graduate Job Scheme
  • UniJob (internal student recruitment service) 
  • Vacancy Advertising  
  • Workplace Experiences 

Employer Pathways, our approach to employer engagement, enables us to deliver a high standard of service to all employers and recruiters that we work with, at a level of engagement that meets their current requirements, and to progress our relationships as appropriate as either a Partner or Associate Employer.

Partner Employers

Partner Employers are those organisations who wish to engage in our employability-enhancing activities during the academic year.

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

Like an Associate Employer, Partner Employers can advertise their employment opportunities to our students and graduates, at no cost, on our CareerHub platform.

Associate Employers

Associate Employers are those organisations whose requirements are met by advertising their employment opportunities, including Workplace Experience internships, to our students and graduates, at no cost, on our CareerHub platform. 

NB: we are keen to actively support employers who wish to progress from being an Associate Employer to a Partner Employer.
