Careers and Employability

Overview

At Liverpool Hope, we want our students to have the best possible chance to embark on stimulating, rewarding and successful careers. 96.5% of Liverpool Hope University graduates were in employment or further education six months after graduating in 2016, above the UK average of 93.9%. 

Your career management is not about what year you are in here at Hope, instead, it is about your transition from student to professional. So, whether you have everything mapped out or you don’t know where to start, our comprehensive Careers and Employability Service will ensure you have the right information, advice and opportunities to give you a great start to your career after graduation.

Careers and Employability offers an extensive programme of events and provision – including careers information, drop-in sessions, one-to-one guidance interviews and employer-led curriculum provision and employability workshops.

We are excited to offer a range of work experience opportunities through the Employability Hub, our open access student hub in the Gateway Building on Hope Park Campus. Our Employability Team are on hand in the Employability Hub to support you into internships, on-campus jobs, part-time student work and graduate level work.

Internships 

Hope Internship Programme is the University’s work experience scheme for students and graduates. Students can complete an internship for 2 to 12 weeks with your business. If you are interested in hosting a Hope intern then contact Hope Internship Programme at hip@hope.ac.uk for more information. 

Graduate Jobs

Your career choices will determine where you should look for graduate roles. From the sector you want to work in, through to your work environment preferences and location.

Graduate Schemes are structured programmes normally offered by larger organisations. Graduate schemes last for 18 months to 3 years. You can focus on one particular career choice, or apply for programmes that allow you to gain experience in a wide variety of departments across the organisation.

Whilst graduate schemes are a great route into large companies, these opportunities only make up 30% of the graduate labour market. Most graduates will be employed directly into individual positions within small to medium businesses. Graduate scheme applications begin from September of your final year, but recruitment for individual positions is less structured.

The Careers Service runs workshops to support you through the application process, including Application Writing support, Mock Interviews and Assessment Centre workshops. Find out when they are available via Events on My Careers Centre or alternatively click on the links below to start your search now.
