The fruits of your success: NUBS Employer Programme

Daniella Dutton, Employability Officer (Faculty of Social Sciences)

Do you know how to sell yourself to a prospective employer in 30 seconds?

How can you secure an internship and gain that all important work experience?

Can you ace an assessment centre?

How can you ensure that you are commercially aware?

These are just a few of the questions that will be answered through participation in the Nottingham University Business School (NUBS) Employer Programme.

The programme is predominantly employer-led, has 20 sessions focusing on a range of skills to prepare you for the recruitment process. From the Big 4, to finance and Fast-moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) companies, there is something for everyone – regardless of your year group or future career interests.

Develop Skills

Participating in the NUBS Employer Programme will not only contribute to the development of your employability skills, it will also increase your confidence in the job market and give you a way to network with your peers, recruiters and alumni from The University of Nottingham – who were in your shoes a few years ago.

Sessions take place on Mondays and Wednesdays and the full schedule can be found on Moodle. Whether you want to attend one session or all 20, we would love to see you there. The programme can even be used to gain 10 credits – non-academic bearing – which can contribute to the completion of the Nottingham Advantage Award.

Gateway to Information

The Moodle page also provides you with a gateway to a wealth of resources and information from CVs and application forms to practice psychometric tests and events outside of the programme, which could be really beneficial for your career development.

Full details of the accreditation options available can be found on Moodle, but should you have any questions about the programme, the accreditation or any of the sessions taking place, please email nubs-ces@nottingham.ac.uk

We hope to see you at some of our sessions in the autumn term.
