Careers and employability

Careers support

Dr Bruce Turnbull and Charlie Stevenson

Throughout your time with us our dedicated Faculty Employability Team will be there to support, guide and advise you. In addition to specialist face-to-face meetings, you’ll benefit from:

  • timetabled employability sessions
  • ongoing support to find internships and placements
  • presentations and workshops delivered by employers

Our Employability Team organises an annual STEM Careers Fair which will give you the opportunity to meet over 50 recruiters to gain an insight into graduate jobs and explore work experience and internship opportunities. Recruiters at last year’s event included, among others: Lubrizol Ltd, L’Oreal, Procter and Gamble, Coty, Unilever, BOC, Lhasa Ltd and Severn Trent Water.

You’ll also have access to the University’s Careers Centre, which is one of the largest in the country. Plus, you’ll be able to attend the Autumn Graduate Jobs and Internships Fair.

Your personal tutor, who you’ll meet with regularly, will be involved with guiding your academic and personal development. Your personal tutor will encourage you to keep a personal and active record of all you have done and achieved. This will help you complete application forms and prepare for interviews.
