Careers and Employability Hub

Every year we help hundreds of our students to explore, develop and shape their futures. The Careers and Employability Hub is here to support you throughout your time at the University, so that you are well prepared for your chosen next steps when you leave. We can help you to explore your career or further study options, develop the skills and self-awareness that will help you achieve your goals, and prepare to promote yourself to employers in a competitive graduate job market.

Our online careers portal, Horizons, provides 24/7 access to a wealth of careers information, e-learning and tools including:

  • self-awareness and aptitude tests
  • career pathway and employer discovery videos
  • help with preparing a CV and applications
  • interview and assessment centre preparation
  • graduate job search tools
  • advice about developing resilience and other skills that are highly valued by employers.

If you would like personalised one-to-one support, career advisors are on hand for face-to-face and remote meetings. There is also an extensive careers library located within our drop-in Careers and Employability Hub on Verney Park Campus

Workshops and presentations form the core of our campus delivery throughout the academic year and we work closely with each academic school to tailor these to your needs. You will also hear from a range of visiting professionals and alumni, and attend on-campus careers fairs to help enrich your understanding of the world of work that lies ahead.
