Other Business Support Offers


At Unitemps Northampton, we work with students, graduates and the local community to find work both within the University and with external businesses across Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire.


Knowledge Transfer Partnerships are a UK wide programme which enables businesses and organisations to benefit from the skills of academic staff and graduates. If you have an idea for your business but do not have all the in-house expertise needed to develop it, a KTP may be the perfect solution.
