The programme qualifies successful graduates to work in a range of youth work and community development settings in the statutory, voluntary and private sectors. As a graduate with a BA Honours degree and professional qualifications in both youth work and community development you are in a strong position for graduate employment or postgraduate study.
From the start of your course, a friendly team of experienced careers advisers, employer liaison and information staff are here to assist you, whether or not you have any firm ideas about the next step in your career.
We run an extensive programme of events to develop your career awareness, helping you to explore opportunities including employer talks and careers fairs. We offer one-to-one advice and guidance - a truly personal service - which supports you and your career plans - and you will have a named careers adviser for your subject.
The Careers Service offers a range of services including skills workshops, practice interviews and practice ability tests, and have extensive up-to-date information, both online and in printed format, with the latest job vacancies, work experience opportunities and changes to recruitment processes.
We maintain very close links with graduate employers, on local, regional, national and international levels, so we can offer you the best advice available and work closely with academic colleagues and student committees to provide specific opportunities, information and events for your course. Many of our academic programmes offer you the opportunity to undertake an internship or work placement.
One of the things that make our Careers Service stand out from those at other universities is that we continue to offer you careers services beyond your graduation. Once you have begun studying at Hull, we are here to guide you at any point of your studies or subsequent career.
Our Careers Service was one of the first to be accredited against the new Matrix standards - the UK quality standard for advice, information and guidance services.
