Careers Service

Link consultants

How to contact the link careers consultant for your department

Each school and/or subject area has a named Careers Consultant with responsibility for:

  • Building relationships with the School
  • Delivering careers guidance to individual students at undergraduate and postgraduateĀ level
  • Providing support in the delivery of career development learning activities

Want to meet your link Consultant/visit the Careers Service?

We work with our academic colleagues to develop activities to ensure students are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to make an effective transition to work or further study.

There is an open invitation to university colleagues to visit the Careers Service to find out what is available for students and to suggest additional materials and activities. Please contact your link Consultant if you would like to discuss this further.
