Matthew Vincent

Business Development Officer,
University of Nottingham

Based in the Careers and Employability Service at the University of Nottingham, I am responsible for maximising the opportunities available to students and graduates, through supporting local, national and global organisations to connect with the University. Whilst having an overview across all faculties and programmes, I also account manage a number of large graduate recruiters to co-ordinate engagement across the University and build collaborative relationships with employers. Previous to joining the University of Nottingham I worked in the third sector, where I helped long term unemployed people move into sustainable employment, which sparked my passion for work experience and employability.
