Department: Employability
£50,132 - £58,089

Grade: J

Campus: All Campuses


Nottingham Trent University is determined to improve the graduate employment outcomes for all of its students; we continue to deliver a wealth of innovative curricular and extracurricular opportunities to our students and have made considerable progress over the last few years; but there is still much to be done to achieve our ambitions.

Intrinsic to our agenda is the role of the School Employability Managers (SEMs) within each academic School.   Since this role was introduced the SEMs have been instrumental in developing the employability offer across the university along with specific School and subject based employability interventions.

The role provides an essential conduit between the employability teams and the School through school management teams, course leaders and academic colleagues and it is these relationships and influence within respective schools that is critical to the success of the role.  In this role academic credentials are key, therefore the equivalent of 0.2 FTE of the SEMs hours are allocated to school based academic duties which also enables the individual to maintain a high level of subject expertise.

The school is currently achieving strong results in relation to DLHE and student employment outcomes, however this post will be focused on elevating this work to the next level, with a particular focus on continuing to enhance future work in the curriculum, supporting employer engagement, scholarship and reputation. This successful candidate will also have a focus on helping identify more effective ways of sharing good practice internally across NTU.

Applications are sought from appropriately qualified and experienced individuals, who share our passion for employability, who can help build our reputation both internally and globally with employers and who can continue the work to improve both the short and longer term outcomes for our students within the Nottingham Law School. If you have an excellent understanding of the graduate and post graduate employment market for law students and strong knowledge of routes into legal practice this could be the role for you.

To arrange an informal discussion or for more information about this opportunity, please contact Doug Cole, Deputy Director of Employability; email,
