Careers and Employability Services - Coronavirus statement
We are making every effort to maintain our online careers support for you during this challenging time. Our staff have moved to a working-from-home model in line with the UK Government’s recommendations. Although we are currently managing to maintain normal service, we hope you understand if we are not always able to answer your queries within the normal five working day period.
For all other updates not related to careers visit the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Help Centre page which is updated daily at 16:00 (UK time).
Careers self-service resources, advice and guidance
We understand that whilst some of you may be very busy with other priorities, some are taking time to review your study motivations, your goals and to plan for the future. You can still access help with exploring options open to you, changing and planning your career. We are continuing to provide all of our self-service group activities such as webinars and forums and career learning events.
Contacting the Careers and Employability Service team
Whether exploring your career options or choosing your next module in line with your plans, you can still access individual guidance by email, telephone or Skype. Alternatively, you may have recently received module results that affect your career choices and wish to discuss your options. Although we aim to maintain normal service, we recommend for individual support that you send us an email in the first instance. You could also use the “Ask a question” feature in OpportunityHub
Vacancies, virtual internships and volunteering on OpportunityHub
OpportunityHub is open for business as usual for students hoping to take up"> opportunities such as virtual internships and volunteering opportunities, as well as applying for graduate schemes and roles advertised by employers. Please be aware that although information is accurate at the time of posting, some employers may pause their recruitment or move their recruitment processes online due to the rapidly changing situation.
Achieving Your Goals programme and Disabled Veterans Scheme
If you are part of the Achieving Your Goals programme, do check in to your official forums and/or Facebook groups, as your dedicated careers team will still be supporting you on these platforms. If you are in the Disabled Veterans Scheme, your careers team is also here to support you and you can contact them by the dedicated contact email or the LinkedIn group.
