Jim Campbell

My name is Jim Campbell and I am a Student Services Manager at Abertay University in Dundee, Scotland. Over the last two decades, I have gathered a wealth of experience in careers services at four different UK universities, ranging from large to small and from ancient to modern. I have filled differing roles, from the operational (as careers adviser) to the strategic (as head of service). I have served in the EAIE Employability Expert Community for the past three years. Over that period, I have helped manage the group’s LinkedIn page and played an active role in the annual conferences, both delivering sessions myself and sourcing high-profile speakers. All of these experiences have helped me to become attuned to the information and training needs of employability colleagues in a variety of settings. I would seek to ensure that these feature in the planning of future activities of the Employability Steering group going forward. I can also draw upon my experience on the board of directors at the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services and share some of its approaches to serving a large and geographically diverse community of employability professionals.
