How can you work with us?

Our award-winning Centre for Entrepreneurship is a key part of the LJMU Careers, Employability and Enterprise Team. Our role is to support students and recent graduates (up to five years after graduating) who want to develop new business start-ups and become self employed.

We work within the programme curriculum at the invitation of Heads of schools, Subject Leaders and Careers Advisors.

We offer a range of hands-on, theory into practice sessions related to specific courses and module learning outcomes and the group you are teaching. Sessions run from one hour upwards.

Our team has a wealth of expertise in helping to bring enterprise alive within the classroom, in more informal settings on or off-campus.

Topics include:

  • Freelancing and side hustles
  • Your personal and career vision
  • Business Model Canvas
  • Your values and why these matter
  • Knowing what an idea is and how to test it
  • Boosting confidence to pitch and present
  • Developing relevant and sustainable networks
  • Knowing your leadership styles and team working
