Liaison with employers
The Employer Liaison Team undertakes initiatives to attract employment/project opportunities into Birmingham Business School. Information about vacancies and other openings will be made available on Careers in Business Online and on Business School noticeboards, as well as through the Careers and Employability Centre vacancy database.
There is also an opportunity to meet with the members of the Employer Liaison team, via referral from one of the Careers Consultants. Upon referral, the team will be happy to discuss and explore careers openings with you and summer project opportunities if your course allows for this.
Students keen to meet with a member from the Employer Liaison Team should first book an appointment with a Careers Consultant through Careers in Business Online.
