You asked: Will I be able to find work at university?
Professional careers staff, as part of the Employability and Careers Service (ECS), consider career planning to be a continual process and not a one-off event. Our aim is to help you make career decisions based on your personal needs and current opportunities. We do this through a range of information, advice and guidance on careers, professional qualifications, employment and further study options.
In addition to individual interviews and drop-in sessions, we run workshops and offer many other facilities, including the computerised careers guidance system, Prospects Planner. We can also help you to prepare your CV, fill in application forms and practice your interview technique.
We are in regular contact with employers and arrange an annual programme of employer visits and presentations. The careers team also helps students to acquire workplace skills and to improve personal development planning.
Every year the university compiles destination statistics for the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).
Our students have gone on to work in occupations as diverse as architect, care manager, nursery nurse, chartered accountant, zoo keeper, civil engineer and information systems developer, and have worked for companies and organisation such as local government, British Telecom, the Environment Agency, Comet, Deutsche Bank, the Department for Work and Pensions and the NHS.
