  About us

​What we do:

  • We provide careers information, advice and guidance to help students and graduates achieve their career goals.
  • We provide workshops (both on-programme and centrally) to help students identify career options, understand the labour market, assess their skills, find opportunities to develop their skills and experience and prepare for employment.
  • We provide 1:1 careers information advice and guidance sessions through Careers drop-ins, bookable appointments to help students and graduates individually. (Please note because of resources available there is a limit of no more that six 1:1 sessions per student in any academic year).
  • We work with the Employer Opportunities Team to provide opportunities for students and graduates to liaise with relevant employers and industry professionals. 
  • We co-ordinate assessment centres across the university to give our students the opportunity to experience this common graduate recruitment process. 

What we can help with

  • Choosing a career and information about different career paths
  • Advising on postgraduate study
  • Making applications, including writing CVs and going to interviews

What we cannot do

  • We do not recommend students to employers: we can help you to find out about employers and to make applications for jobs, but we do not have any special influence with employers
  • We cannot provide specific lists of employers recruiting people from your country or your degree subject
  • We are happy to give advice on the structure and content of your application forms and CV, but we cannot write it for you. Neither do we offer a proof-reading service for your applications, although we will point out any areas that need improving. Your application must be in your own words, and employers will expect graduates from a British university to have a good command of the English language
  • We are not qualified to give detailed advice about your entitlement to work in the UK

Feedback

We welcome your feedback on any aspect of our service.
