At the University of Newcastle, we believe that the most effective way for our students to be career-ready is to engage directly with the organisations that hire them. Our diverse body of students and graduates are eager to engage with industry, develop practical skills to enhance their job readiness, and contribute to businesses both locally and globally.

Businesses need talented people who are ready to make a difference and we know that finding the right people can be challenging. The Careers and Employability Team support a wide range of recruitment and engagement strategies with the aim of delivering benefits to employers, students and graduates.
