So many of our graduates are now working within the political arena in Westminster or Whitehall that they affectionately are known as the 'Hull Mafia'. Beyond these confines, the degree has also led graduates into careers in political consultancy, the media, public relations, the private commercial charitable sectors; and international organisations. Posts held by graduates from this degree currently include: Manager of Government and Parliamentary Business, Ofcom; Deputy Mayor for Housing, Land and Property, Greater London Authority; Special Advisor, Department for Transport; Member of Parliament; Senior Legislation Manager, Department of Health; Senior Parliamentary Adviser, Historic England; and Assistant Director, Head of Public Affairs and Public Policy, The Royal British Legion. In addition, many graduates have gone on to study at Masters and Doctoral level, and/or to pursue successful academic careers.
We like to keep in touch with our graduates and do so by facilitating the Graduates’ Association. Members are notified of interesting news and events occurring in the world of Politics as well as receiving an annual copy of the Graduate Directory, which is an excellent tool for networking, particularly in the early stages of your career. As a graduate you will also have access to the University Careers Service, which will provide a wealth of advice, information and guidance to help ready you for the world of work.
