Department: Employability
Location: City Campus
Salary: £23,500 p.a.

At Nottingham Trent University (NTU) we have built an excellent record for graduate employment, with 93% of our graduates being employed or engaged in further study six months after leaving (DLHE survey 2015/16). We also strive to continuously improve what we do and are therefore investing in more resources to strengthen our Employability team.

We're looking for an enthusiastic Graduate Employability Project Officer to provide information and advice to our students about job seeking and recruitment practices. You'll offer support for both graduate jobs and placement and work experience opportunities, including checking CVs and cover letters. You'll also assist with managing our online resources, aid employers participating in a range of employability-related events and assist with organising and delivering open days for prospective students wishing to study at NTU.

The successful candidate will have excellent customer service skills and strong administration skills, as well as be a great communicator and demonstrate proficiency with a range of technology and IT facilities.

This role is part of NTU’s Graduate Development Programme, offering you an extensive range of development opportunities. The programme is personalised and tailored to your skill set, to help you:

  • improve your workplace skills
  • advance your leadership skills
  • build your confidence
  • provide you with employment experience.

Please refer to the job description and person specification when completing your application to demonstrate how you meet the requirements for the role. 

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-European Economic Area (EEA) candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the University is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test.

UK Visas and Immigration, part of the Home Office, requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post.

For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

Don’t forget, you can get support from the NTU Employability Team for all stages of the recruitment process. Visit their website or email employability@ntu.ac.uk for more information.
