Our employer partners

A unique aspect of Prosper is its development in meaningful partnership with employers, covering a range of fields, sectors and sizes – from multinationals to SMEs and science and technology companies to arts organisations and charities.

We’re working directly with employers from the public, private and third sectors to understand exactly what they need from their workforce, and applying these insights to equip postdocs with the relevant skills, mindsets and attributes to meet these needs. We’re preparing postdocs to hit the ground running and thrive and succeed in any career pathway they chose. 

This is of even more importance now as employers seek to steer their organisations through unchartered waters created by COVID-19. 

To date, Prosper and the content of the portal has been informed by over 20 employers including:

Alderley Park, Ashfield HealthAstra Zeneca, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Cancer Research UK, Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership, Consult Resource Scale Invest (CRSI), ElancoEnvironment Agency, F- Star Therapeutics, IBMKinomica, Koura Global, Liverpool Growth Platform, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, National Museums Liverpool, Notch CommunicationsPets at Home, SCI Foundation, Sci-Tech Daresbury, Tate Liverpool, The Reader, Think PhilanthropyUnilever

We will continue to develop and expand our employer partners throughout the project. If there is a particular sector or field that you would like to see represented, or if you know any employers who may be interested in working with us, please get in touch by emailing prosper.postdoc@liverpool.ac.uk
