Employer Engagement Officer (Events & Liaison)

Careers Service (Academic Registry)



Part of the Employer Engagement Team within the Careers Service, my role is to bring employers to the university for fairs, panel sessions, presentations, drop-ins and employability competitions. Much time is spent planning and organising these events, ensuring the businesses and organisations have a positive experience with the University and our students. When not working on events, I am reaching out and networking with potential new businesses and maintaining current relationships.


I have worked in HE since I left school at 18 in Leicester in 1985. I have seen polytechnics become universities and the introduction and subsequent raising of tuition fees. 

I joined Leicester Polytechnic straight from A-levels, which went on to become De Montfort University. After 21 years there I relocated to Cornwall and started to work at the University of Plymouth.
I have few formal qualifications (2 A-Levels & NVQ Level 3 Advice and Guidance (2016) ) but I have an immense amount of experience of HE. I was based in the Library Services at De Montfort University, eventually in a position to manage frontline teams. 
I have been based in the Careers Service here at Plymouth since January 2007.
