Hello from your Careers Crew!

The Careers, Placements and Experience Centre (more affectionately known as the Careers Centre) would like to say a very big hello and welcome back to all our new and returning students.

Important things you need to know about the Careers Centre

  • You can come and see us at any point during your degree – not just at the end when you’re looking for a graduate job, the earlier the better!
  • You don’t have to know what you want to do to come and see us, we have the expertise and can help you build up your ideas from ground zero
  • We run the Job Shop based in RUSU, which is open 10-4pm during term time helping you find part time, term time work and summer internships
  • We run the RED Award, an employability and development scheme which rewards you for building up employability skills through your extracurricular activities
  • We run specific sessions for your course, faculty as well as through our central programmes
  • We host employers and careers fairs on campus throughout the year
