Talent Gateway provides central, commercial, externally focused professional business development and key account management function for the University.
Working alongside the Schools, the unit directly engages with employers, local authorities and academic partners to generate new income and broader commercial engagement opportunities including:
- increasing continuing professional development income
- internships and placement and other forms of commercial income
- income and wider educational and reputational benefits from growing our academic partnerships in the UK and globally (physically and online)
In addition to generating income in its own right from lettings, the business centre will focus increasingly on supporting the commercialisation of student companies, providing a flow of investable companies to associated angel investors.
