Careers Service staff

Welcome to your Careers Service

Supporting you in your career journey and enabling you to succeed in the world of work is our job. We want you to take that first step in planning your career, or maybe the next step in terms of realising your ambitions.

University of Plymouth graduates are highly successful in the world of work. Our graduates are sought after and secure roles locally, regionally, nationally and globally. They work for the biggest and most famous companies and brands alongside small high-growth businesses across all sectors and in a vast array of roles.

Our service comes in all shapes and sizes and there is something for everyone, however decided and focussed or undecided and unsure you may be. The key is to engage with us throughout the whole of your time at the University.

Much of what we do will be part of your academic programmes through workshops, events, placements and networks, working with the academic staff teaching on your course. Alongside that, we offer materials, networks and resources online through our 24/7 portal and a wide range of activities, opportunities and support centrally in the Careers Service space within the Student Hub.

Remember that this is your Careers Service. We are here to help you to explore, connect and succeed.
