Information for Employers
As a dedicated online careers and employability team, we are uniquely placed to help you build a globally focussed high quality talent pipeline that includes a range of experience.
Our 50,000 distance and flexible learning degree students are based in 190 countries and receive academic direction from prestigious University of London Member Institutions including: University College London, King’s College London, London School of Economics & Political Science, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Goldsmiths, and City University amongst others.
Our students bring with them high quality academics, and highly developed digital skills gained through their distance learning. In addition, our students have a unique range of experience which maps onto three categories which can help you recruit for both graduate and experienced hire positions:
- Career Starters – limited work experience, using their studies to launch their career.
- Career Developers – extensive work experience, using their studies to enhance their career.
- Career Changers – substantial work experience, using their studies to pivot their career.
We work with employers from around the world to collaborate with us to highlight career paths and specific roles through business case studies, panel discussions, a vacancy service and involvement in our academic programmes.
