The Employability Support Unit could also help equip you with the skills you need to impress during rigorous application processes, from offering you CV and application form guidance to running mock interviews and providing psychometric test support.

We'll run a Liverpool Business School Placements Fair

Every year Liverpool Business School invites prestigious employers to our Placements Fair. This event will give you the opportunity to make contacts with some of the world’s biggest employers. Previously, companies such as Aldi, Bentley, General Motors, and Liverpool John Lennon Airport have attended.

We'll help you gain membership to professional bodies

Thanks to our relationships with key professional bodies we can help you gain student membership to groups such as Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (the world’s largest professional body of management accountants), ICAEW (for accountancy and finance professionals), CIPD (the professional body for HR and people development) and the Chartered Institute of Marketing (the leading international body for marketing and business development).

The placement year was amazing and because of this experience I already have a job as a Marketing Assistant at Halewood International. The tutors were always approachable and friendly and there is a great atmosphere for students in the city.
