Careers and Employability at the Union


Your Students' Union offers a range of ways for you to boost your employability, like volunteering opportunities and paid positions, training and acquiring useful skills in our retail/catering outlets, getting involved with our environmental projects, or even running a society/sports club. 

No matter what year you're in, it is important to be thinking of your future career goals and how your time and experience within the Union, the University, and the wider community can contribute to your future and make you more employable.


Careers Service


The University has a wonderful Careers Service, which you now have life-long membership of from the day you enrol. They are there every step of your journey whether you are exploring and developing your career goals or ready to compete in the job market. 

You can sign up for Careers on Canvas, the Careers Service's online module. It's packed with interactive tools and e-learning content. Information is categorised by the phases 'Explore', ‘Develop’, and 'Compete' to help you get the right information at the right time to suit your career planning.

And don't forget to activate your TARGETconnect account. As a student, you can use this to register for events, access Pathways, and book Quick Query appointments.
