What we do

Whatever you want to do in the future – whether your career path is clear or not – your Careers team are here to support you. We can advise you on opportunities you have right now and help you develop skills. If you are not sure what you want to do, we can help clarify your career thinking. We're focused on one thing – to empower you to pursue careers that are fulfilling and to make a living doing what you love.

We have adapted our service to make sure of flexibility and access when you need it:

  • In-person – come to our Careers Centre on campus and chat to our friendly team on the Careers Helpdesk.
  • On-demand – engage with your future on MyFuture when it suits you. You have access to a wealth of resources on demand, as well as event recordings. You can use these to develop your career-related knowledge and skills. Read our blog for more handy tips.
  • Online – If you aren't on campus, all of our appointments have remote options available.
