Driving success for academic institutions through supporting students, graduates and businesses

We add value to universities looking to enhance their employability propositions and SME engagement.

Engaging with students to increase graduate outcomes and providing business support on behalf of institutions, we give students the skills they need for their chosen career path and help you create impact within local business communities. Ensuring you provide demonstrable outcomes along the way.

We support students and graduates to achieve their full career potential.

An enriched experience for students. Enhanced graduate outcomes. Improved market competitiveness for your institution.

Complementing your existing employability services, we equip your students with the confidence they need to identify their future career path. And the skills they need to secure their chosen graduate role.

Our support doesn’t end there. We never stop innovating – constantly adapting our services to deliver what you and your students need. This includes support they can access online or in person, through services that are also available out of hours. We facilitate student learning and development one-to-one, or one-to-many – with all outcomes monitored and analysed, so you see the results. 

Together, we’ll help your students take control of their future.

Our advice in action

"A university’s careers service is one of its most important attributes" - by Kate Douglas, former Director of Employability at Middlesex University

"I say this for a number of reasons: firstly, we know how valuable an institution’s graduate employment statistics can be; it’s a measure that parents and students are interested in and it impacts the widely recognised league tables and the TEF Award. More importantly though, it’s vital that universities assist students in the search for employment, whether that be to narrow the attainment gap, broaden career horizons or build capacity and employability skills." Read more

Testimonials

Collaborating with an external partner is really what has enabled us to make this service such a success. Our partnership with Exemplas has given us immediate and timely access to a flexible and experienced resource pool that enables us to meet peaks and troughs in demand across the range of services offered. Rather than adding an extra dimension to the employability service, Exemplas has provided the backbone for it.

Former Director of Employability, Middlesex University

Overall I’m delighted with the offer and how it’s working, and your input into the team and enthusiasm is incredible. So thank you.
