Careers Awards

The 2021 Careers Awards took place virtually this year on Tuesday 27th April 2021. We would like to congratulate all of those receiving nominations and awards and we hope you enjoyed the evening.

Edge Hill University recognises employability as an essential component of students’ experience, and Careers, with departments from across the whole University, play a vital role in ensuring that our graduates are well prepared to succeed in a competitive labour market.

Every year, the Careers Awards provide an opportunity to recognise the progress and achievements that students have made in developing their ability to stand out from the crowd. It is also a chance to say thank you to some of the employers, departments and organisations who work in partnership with us, helping our students develop their skills and increase their confidence.
