MBA Employer Relations Manager

Roles and Responsibilities

I am responsible for establishing and maintaining relationships with a diverse range of employers for our MBA graduates to utilise. It is my role to advise and support in order to facilitate effective employer engagement with our students, recent graduates and the wider university.

I am also involved with both direct 1:1 and group support of the MBA students to provide careers support and up to date advice on job application strategy.

The final aspect of my role is to support the organisation of numerous trips and treks as well as other events that the MBA programme holds.


I have worked within the recruitment industry for over 7 years. The mainstay of my career has been working for the Resource Solutions Group. The time at RSG consisted of a number of different roles and responsibilities across the group.

I began my career here as a relationship manager within the consultancy side of the business which then went on to taking responsibility for operations across the same business. This then led to moving into an internal change management project helping to deliver a particular cultural shift within one of our regional offices. Finally, I took on the responsibility for a HR networking group promoting best practice across the industry. This led to running numerous events which involved a number of high profile HR professionals and creating material which was released into the HR market.

I have now joined the Business School and am working within the MBA team as the Employer Relations Manager.
