Employability and careers

We deliver excellence in employability, career management skills and entrepreneurship support that contextualises employability in the student-learning journey through practice-centred learning, placements and study exchange to develop talented and highly sought-after global graduates and researchers. We also strive to work together with our industry partners to understand your individual recruitment needs and help you to meet your business objectives through our talent pool.

Supporting our students 

In the current challenging environment, we are:

  • Working hard to support our students to manage the impact of Coronavirus on their career journeys.
  • Providing online one-to-one appointments and a wide range of online guidance to help students during these unprecedented times
  • Working with employers to arrange virtual events

For additional careers help and support with job hunting during the Coronavirus pandemic, please visit the Nextstep support website.
