Plymouth Business School careers and employability

Business students benefit from Embercombe's Catalyst course

Your career is our job. We want to equip you with the knowledge, skills, behaviours and experience, which will set your career off to a flying start and make you highly sought by employers. 

As well as your academic achievements, prospective employers will be interested in any real and relevant work experience you may have. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of opportunities to help you boost your confidence, and ultimately, employability.

From full year placements to shorter posts and work experience, our dedicated placements and work experience adviser  Emily Packer can help you to find the right opportunity to suit your needs and ambitions.

We also offer a huge range of skills- and career-related workshops, master classes, business networking events and business-specific careers fairs, alongside individual and personalised coaching and career guidance.

And of course you can meet other like-minded individuals by getting involved in a range of networks and societies to make your student experience and life with us highly connected, engaging and fun.
