Influence strategy and share expertise

Here at the University of Exeter we pride ourselves on our relationship with our employer partners and strive to offer the best possible service at all times. As part of our commitment to working in partnership with employers we actively encourage the sharing of ideas and expertise with the aim of helping shape and influence the University’s Employability strategy. You can contribute via our annual Employer Forum or for a more business networking focus through the University’s Business Leaders Forum.

Employer Forum

The Employer Forum is an annual event aimed at giving employers and key university staff involved with the employability agenda the opportunity to meet and discuss key employability topics. This interactive and engaging event is held during the second half of the academic year and is designed to help inform and shape the following years employability activities. It’s also an opportunity to hear about the latest initiatives here at the University as well as contribute to discussions on a number of topics. If you wish to take part in the Employer Forum please contact Steve Wallers, Employment Services and Placements Manager to discuss further.
