Acting Careers Service Lead Ghislaine Dell said
With globalisation increasingly important in the current graduate labour market, it is vital that we enable our students to access opportunities further afield than simply the UK. This week of specially curated events shows students what it is like to work internationally in a variety of countries, organisations and career stages. As well as that, we offer some advice and tools for students to successfully navigate their international career path. Whether you are an international student looking to return home, or any student looking to work in a country other than their home country, we hope you will find something for you in this exciting week!
Outside of this week of events the Careers Service is always here to support you if you are considering working outside the UK. We can help you with your job search strategy, applications and anything else career planning related. Find out more about how the Careers Service can support you.
