Key facts

Employer Liaison Groups consist of internal and external representatives, including alumni, employers, students, academic and careers service staff. The Groups have a remit to discuss and enhance students’ employability, graduate destinations and skills development. Groups help ensure that academic Schools and disciplines develop links with external representatives and provide channels to build durable employer-University relationships, which bring clear benefits to all stakeholders.

  • Biological Sciences

There are opportunities for external organisations, employers and alumni to participate in these School-level Employer Liaison Groups, which meet several each academic year.
