Employability Services at the University of Northampton
Finishing university with a good degree is great, graduating with a well-rounded and complete set of employability skills is even better. That is why the University of Northampton works hard to support students to become highly employable graduates.
The Changemaker Hub
The Changemaker Hub works with students throughout their degree to develop and enhance employability skills. There are a wide variety of additional opportunities to develop these skills including volunteering, work placements, internships, part-time jobs and the opportunity to become a University Ambassador. Students are then supported to evidence these skills through their CV, job applications and interviews.
All students at the University of Northampton can take part in Employability Plus. This is a unique service to the university and provides the opportunity to gain more than just a good degree. It incentivises, rewards and recognises a student's investment in activities taken undertaken outside of the degree programme, supporting them to give and get more out of the things they choose to do.
