Find out what employers want

ASK is a programme of employer interaction sessions which take place throughout the academic year. ASK stands for Ask questions, Shape ideas and Kickstart careers.

ASK sessions take the form of either a panel discussion or an employer-led workshop. These sessions aim to be informing, insightful and inspiring.

In ASK panels, up to three employer panellists will discuss their current roles, what a typical day looks like for them, how they got to where they are now and what they look for in applicants.

In ASK workshops, an employer will lead a workshop to either cover a specialist topic to enhance and compliment university learning or run a project workshop that gives students experience of working to industry standards.

ASK sessions, either panels or workshops, help students to be competitive graduates and find out about a role or industry. Some panels and workshops are embedded directly into curriculums.
