The Employer Relations / Career Service department is responsible for contacts at all levels between HHL and companies (work experience and other placements, sponsorships, alumni contacts and field projects). This is where all the relevant information comes together that can be used in the career advice given to students on all courses of study.  And conversely, students are also introduced into companies, with the result that the companies receive regular information about HHL.

We see our role as that of a connecting link between HHL and the business world, between research and professional practice, between students, alumni and potential employers.
