Social Enterprise Hub
About Social Enterprise Hub
Our Social Enterprise Hub is where employability meets social impact, an opportunity for you to use your skills and energy to make the world a better place.
Taking what you learn in the classroom into relevant positive organisations gives you meaningful work experience and networking opportunities that will see you graduate confident and career-ready. At the same time, you’ll be helping valuable organisations and initiatives reach their goals and making a contribution to your community.
Our recent partnerships
Our partner organisations share our commitment to make a positive social impact. As part of your learning experience, you’ll use your skills and knowledge to help them achieve their objectives and add value to their organisations.
Work experience with Social Enterprise HubMeaningful work experience at organisations that share your values helps bridge the gap between your in-classroom learning and industry experience. The range of experiences available includes work placements, team-based challenges (both class-based and hackathons), industry events and research projects, as well as volunteering and job opportunities with social enterprises.
You’ll be matched with a relevant organisation – from corporates through to for-purpose enterprises – to help you build the skills, understanding and confidence you’ll need for your career. You'll also have a positive social impact while you study, which fits in with our commitment to Be Good.
