LJMU Graduate Futures

Connecting SMEs to Graduate Talent

European Social Fund

Graduate Futures is supported by the European Social Fund and will to develop a sustainable interface between the Liverpool John Moores University, our student and graduate talent and Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) across the Liverpool City Region.

  • For owners and leaders within our City Region’s SMEs; the project will provide cost effective support to develop student and graduate roles within their business
  • For our students and graduates; the project will expand the volume and range of professional-level employment opportunities open to them within our SME base.

Three main ways that the project will add value:

  1. Student Internships – short projects for undergraduates
  2. Sandwich placements – a year in industry for penultimate year students
  3. Graduate Placements – an extended project for graduates

Tailored support will be available for both students, graduates and SMEs.
