Politics Project Promoting Employability
Graduates of the department’s undergraduate and postgraduate programmes have gone on to work for or develop their careers in a very broad range of employers (including the House of Commons library, the housing charity Shelter, the International Institute for Environment and Development, Siemens Wind Power, the Law Society, the Confederation of British Industries, Bank of America/Merryll Lynch, the Metropolitan Police, the UK civil service, the Institute for Government, the House of Lords, the Rail Delivery Group, the European Centre for Development Policy Management) in addition to pursuing their studies further in leading universities such as Oxford, LSE etc.
The department has launched a project to promote employability and to link work with study. The project has three components and its objective is to offer participating students a range of opportunities to consider and discuss with professionals how to develop their careers in specific sectors that relate directly to the department’s subject area. The components include an employability event on 9th January 2015, an Expert in Residence and a mentoring scheme.
