LJMU Business Studies degree graduates

Four graduates from SERC have landed coveted positions with PWC following successful completion of their degree course at the College.

The students all completed the Liverpool John Moores University BA (Hons) in Business Studies (now BSc Business Management) which was delivered at SERC’s Bangor Campus.  

Leah Hamilton, from Bangor, has been appointed an Associate in Project Management; Luke McMullen, from Comber, appointed an Associate in Business Risk & Compliance; Christina Kerr, from Belfast, appointed an Associate in Entity Governance & Compliance; and Jay Downey, from Newtownards, has been appointed an Associate in Compliance Testing.

Suzi Donnelly, Course Director said, “We are absolutely thrilled to see our students walk out through the door and into positions with a top consultancy such as PWC."     

She added, “Our students are encouraged to be entrepreneurs, to make connections for placements and apply for jobs as soon as possible.  Specific modules throughout the degree programme, such as Personal & Professional Development, Employability & Enterprise, careers tutorials, and a requirement to set up a LinkedIn profile mean our business graduates are equipped and ready for setting themselves ahead in a competitive graduate job market, and for securing those roles which are essentially the first step onto a career ladder.   They produce a portfolio centred around their experiences in researching companies, applying for jobs and analysing their skills needs; attend mock interviews and undertake psychometric tests so they know what to expect when it comes to the real thing and they have these skills mastered for the next step, and the next step after that.”

There is still time to apply for higher education programmes commencing September 2022. unlock your future #BetterOffAtSERC.
