Employability Guides

Your time as a student is the perfect time to nurture your talents, build your skills and gain experience of the different career and life options available to you.

We’ve put together the following guides – written by your Students’ Union, Careers Network, the National Union of Students and other employability services – to help you find work, build your skills and get ready for your post-University careers search, whatever form that takes!

CV Check Appointments

We run CV check appointments each Wednesday in the Guild of Students during term-time. To book your appointment please visit: http://www.guildskills.eventbrite.co.uk

For more information and support on producing a CV, covering letter or writing an application form for placements, internships or graduate jobs, please refer to Careers Network




To ensure that you get what you need from us, when you need it, we have created a set of promises which we will always aim to deliver.
