Experience

Student and Graduate Employment Officer
University of Brighton
As Student and Graduate Employment Officer at the University of Brighton I work with both students and employers. My main role is to co-ordinate the University of Brighton' vacancy service. This includes improving the procedures and administrative systems to make the service more efficient internally and in turn allow us to be able to provide a better service to our students, graduates and employers. I also provide recruitment information and advice to students and graduates to help them find appropriate employment. I continually develop my knowledge and improve the service we offer to all our stakeholders by working in partnership with internal teams and external organisations on matters relating to student and graduate employment. I regularly work with employers on all things vacancy related and in turn promote other ways employers can engage further with the university and careers centre in particular. Since working at the University, starting in 2009, I have also worked additional hours within the Active Student Volunteering team providing admnistrative support and for two years also set up and managed the University's first Graduate Internship Programme so have a good overall knowledge of the employability opportunties available to students and graduates in the current economic climate.
