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.
96.2% of Liverpool Hope University graduates were in employment or further education six months after graduating in 2015, above the UK average of 93.9%. The University has also beaten its own benchmark of 95.1% - the only Liverpool-based University to do so.

In addition to strong academic qualifications, it is also one of our key priorities to develop well rounded individuals who have more to offer. We like to help our graduates acquire skills which will enable them to play a full role as active citizens in modern society - at a local, national or global level.

Careers & Employability at Liverpool Hope University provides careers information, advice and guidance and aims to inspire, inform and encourage by providing up to date information and intelligence on the changing world of work. Careers and Employability offers everything that you would expect – including careers information, drop-in sessions, one-to-one guidance interviews and careers events and employer led workshops.

We are excited to offer a range of employment related opportunities through our Employability Hub. The Hub is located in the Gateway Building, Hope Park and offers part-time and full-time work – on and off campus; work experience and volunteering opportunities; internships and Graduate Advocate opportunities within the university.
