Employer engagement is a key component of our employability strategy for our students and graduates at St Mary’s. We are keen and seek to work with a wide range of businesses and organisations across sectors including: Business, Charity, Education, and Sport. 

Each academic year, the employability services team organises employer events for organisations to meet with students on campus and online. Below is a planned timetable of events for the 2023/24 academic year.
