Chris Ruffler

Chris Ruffler is Manager of Curtin Careers, Employment & Leadership's Partnerships and Operations.

Originally hailing from the UK, he spent almost 10 years at the University of Liverpool Careers Centre helping students and graduates secure course related employment in local businesses. Chris then moved to Perth for the chance to experience something rarely seen in Northern England - sunshine. He has been working for Curtin Careers, Employment & Leadership for over 6 years.

His passion for student and graduate employability and employment matches his love for the round-ball version of football, for which he is an avid supporter of two perennially struggling teams - Tranmere Rovers and Perth Glory.
