Everything we do here is to help you succeed in your future, such as the careers fairs we run for subject specific areas so you can meet the right employers. Our Employability Team can help you to:
- find placements, internships and part-time work

Our Acceler8 Employability Award is a free programme that you can do in your own time. It is designed to improve your employability by showing employers the broad range of skills and experiences you have.
