Help us build enterprising futures, together.

At LSBU we inspire and support our students and graduates to grow their skills, take opportunities and create their own futures; and be truly enterprising.

But enterprise isn’t just about starting a business. It’s about developing the kind of skills, thinking and actions that make you stand out from the crowd. We support our students and graduates into inspiring and rewarding work, whatever form that may take.

And you can help. But our students can also help you, and your business.

Over the last academic year approximately 4,500 LSBU students and graduates engaged in enterprise-related activities, including 60 students registering new innovations, demonstrating their commitment to starting or growing their own businesses.


Hire Our Graduates

Employability has been celebrated at LSBU since 1892. Our students benefit from our relationship with industry and how we build insights from our research into course content. In such a competitive graduate job market, we give our students the edge you need.

Fill your permanent vacancies

As an employer you can post your vacancies on our university job board without charge, putting your latest opportunity in front of all our current students and recent graduates.

Organisations that offer exclusive opportunities and on-campus activities can also access our talent pool, making recruitment simpler and giving you a higher profile as a recognised partner.

Invest in apprenticeships

Designed to match the needs of employers with the skills and ambitions of an applicant, apprenticeships naturally benefit both your business and your new employee.

Driven by industry demand, our higher and degree level apprenticeships come with rigorous entry requirements, and connect universities, employers, professional bodies and apprentices in a formal relationship that meets the skills needs of the economy.

With access to a pot of money (the levy) held by the Government, apprenticeships are a cost-effective way for organisations to develop existing staff, hire fresh talent, and potentially change someone’s life.

Raise your profile

Focused on health, social justice and sustainability in an increasingly digital world, our research centres are beacons of excellence and innovation, working with our research groups and industry to deliver an international reputation for results and real-world impact.

Includes: addictive behaviours, health and social care, (bio)engineering, social justice, creative technologies, cognitive systems, energy, sport, Net Zero and more.

Place our students

We're always keen to connect with organisations who can help our students apply what they learn in the real-world, whilst at the same time helping you meet your own business needs.

Placements and internships are a perfect starting point, with many benefits.

Increase capacity and impact of your teams to deliver targeted short-term projects
Bring fresh insight into business operations, management and customer relations
Create mentorship opportunities for your employees
Develop a future pipeline of talent

We're especially keen to develop opportunities for LSBU students to work with local SMEs and start-ups, supporting the growth of this fast-growing sector while giving our students a taste of what it really takes to run a business.
