Work with Us
There are many different ways in which you can work with us to support the employability of our students and graduates. We have listed some below, however, if you have an idea of how we could work together, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
Refer a Student or Graduate
We see students and graduates for everything from putting together a CV for a part-time job, to career planning, to supporting them through the graduate recruitment and selection process.
If your student has a quick 10-15 minute query (e.g. a CV check), then please refer them to our CV and application appointments. Longer guidance appointments are available, please refer students to this link to find out when they are and to contact us to book.
Alternatively, you can refer students to our online self-directive careers resources:
MyCareer – JobShop; careers events; appointment booking; internships; Ask Us A Question; job alerts
MyCareerPlus – CV builder; cover letter builder; interview simulator; assessment centres; psychometric tests; employer videos
MyCareer Resource Hub – graduate schemes; careers sector information; global careers; application tips from employers; work experience; creative CVs
Link with your School Careers Adviser
Each School has an allocated adviser from our professionally qualified careers adviser team, you can find out who your contact is here. Your link careers adviser can work with you to provide consultancy on any employability related area. This could include embedding employability within your curriculum, providing expertise on key external drivers and labour market information and delivering employability related lectures, workshops or short inputs.
We are open to suggestions for collaborative, cross-institutional projects, if you have any ideas please contact us. Previous projects have included:
- MePlus – an employability award created with CLS for their student workers

We support those staff who are interested in, in the middle of, or have completed their Qualification in Careers Guidance (QCD) by offering you the opportunity to work shadow our team of experienced careers advisers in either quick query or guidance sessions. For more information, please contact us.
On completion of your qualification we also support you to keep your skills refreshed and up to date by becoming a part of our ‘Careers Adviser Pool’ – this would mean that when we have gaps in our guidance offering that we give you the opportunity to fill those gaps. In order to be admitted to the pool, you must:

If you have a business facing element to your role then our Business Partnership Team would love to work with you. This team works with business to supply their talent needs from part-time jobs, student and graduate internships, and graduate jobs which are advertised exclusively to our students through our JobShop.

Strategically, in 2017, we co-formed the University’s Business and Employer Engagement Group in collaboration with Services to Business.
