How can I improve my employability skills?

The University Careers Team are here to help and empower you to make well-informed decisions about your future, support you with all aspects of career planning, and help you with finding and applying for jobs. Whether it’s attending an employer event to learn more about industries and organisations you might want to work in, finding a placement, searching for part-time or graduate work, or an individual appointment focusing on your future career decisions, help is available.

For more information, explore the University's online employability resources or book an appointment with the Careers team.
