Developing Skills for Work

Middlesex University has an ambitious vision to ensure that all our graduates are 100% employable: 100% employed

MDXworks on campus | online

Delivered by our Employability service, MDXworks, is dedicated to supporting students develop the vital skills needed to stand out when applying for graduate jobs. They offer a wide range of services to help them gain transferable skills, obtain work experience and take the relevant steps to secure their dream job.

Employers often look for a number of different employability skills when looking to hire someone. A positive attitude is key, as is a readiness to take part, openness to new ideas and activities, and a desire to learn and achieve results. Other key skills that employers tend to look for include:

  • Self-management
  • Team working
  • Business and customer awareness
  • Problem solving
  • Resilience and a "can-do" attitude
  • Communication skills
  • Application of literacy and numeracy
  • IT and word processing skills

Our services include both office-based support and online resources to enable students to make the most of the information available to them. Throughout the year, the University also holds on-campus job and employment events that are attended by employers, trade associations and professional bodies.

Employability Support

One-to-one employability support is available by phone, email or Skype/online. Our Employability Service provide the following services for current students and on-going support for graduates, helping to develop those invaluable skills for work experience, placements, internships or that all important graduate job.

Employability Business Partners

Our School-specific Employability Business Partners offer group skills development workshops delivered in departments on behalf of academic colleagues. Topics are targeted towards particular programmes of study.

Enterprise Development Hub

Tailored support is also available to help students set up and grow their own businesses through our Enterprise Development Hub.
