About us

The Careers and Employability Service supports all Huddersfield students and graduates to achieve their career potential. We work in coordination with the Students' Union, employers and other external stakeholders to inspire global professionals. We put students at the centre and treat each person as an individual and are committed to an inclusive, holistic, humanistic and client centred approach.

We are a member of the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS), and work in accordance with the AGCAS code of ethics. Importantly, we utilise a partnership approach to employability working closely with academics and professional services staff in Schools and elsewhere including School based Placement Units, as well as the Enterprise Team, the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre along with the Students' Union.

We value the contribution of Wellbeing and Disability, who are also under the umbrella of Student Services. Equally, we value employers, alumni and other external organisations and actively seek their input and involvement.

The Careers and Employability Service consists of three small, but highly dedicated teams:

  • Business Partnership Team
  • Careers and Guidance
  • Global Professional Award

Our Head of Service is Claire Aydogan. To find out more about who is in our team, go to our meet the team page.

Our services for students and graduates are explained here in our Careers Statement of Service document and the services to support Schools are set out in our Service Offer. 

The University’s Careers Centre is located in Student Central, opposite Starbucks, while our staff offices are in Sir John Ramsden Court.
