Careers and Employability Service

Masters Students

With many taught Masters courses being of just a year or so in duration, the time can pass by very quickly. If you intend to start a graduate-entry job on completion of your Masters course, you almost have to start considering the next stage of your career at the start of this one, as some employers advertise opportunities a year in advance of the start date. This applies to many public-sector opportunities, such as the National Civil Service, NHS graduate schemes, the national Local Government Scheme, as well as many private-sector employers.

There are several ways to obtain careers advice and guidance, whether you want to talk through any ideas or concerns about your career, to obtain advice on any type of work or obtain  feedback on your CV, help with interviews or any aspect of recruitment and selection:
