Work with us to raise your company profile

If you're looking for ways to attract and engage our graduates, we can advise you on raising your company profile across the University through various activities.

Lead a presentation

At our employer presentations you'll stand in front of an audience of students and promote your company. You'll get the chance to sell your company mission and culture, putting your business ahead of other companies.

If needed, we can market your presentation to students studying a specific subject area or in a specific year, to make sure that you're presenting to the most suitable audience to match your recruitment needs.

Lead a skills session

When you lead a skills session for our students, you'll give them insight into the recruitment process, and build brand loyalty in the next generation of graduates. Your skills session will help students and graduates understand what employers expect during the recruitment process. For this reason, employer skills sessions are extremely popular and valuable for graduates.

Partner with our academics

You can partner directly with different academic departments across the University to raise your company profile among students and graduates. These partnerships can involve activities such as leading guest lectures for students, providing case studies of your business as inspiration to students, sponsoring a student prize or arranging for a group student visit to your business.

Kevin Briscoe (also one of our Entrepreneurs in Residence) partners with us each year to provide the Briscoe PR Prize to the most outstanding student on the journalism course.

If you'd like to work with us to raise your company profile among our upcoming and recent graduates, you can email sally.nicolson@port.ac.uk or call us on +44 (0)2392 842 684.
