Employability Updates

Appointment booking

I now have more appointments available – please book early to avoid disappointment.   If you can’t find an appointment, please check back; they are released two weeks in advance.  Please book via UniHub– please do not email me to book appointments.

If you booked an appointment and find that you will be unable to make it, please be considerate and cancel it via UniHub, or drop me an email, so I can release it for another student to book.

The central Careers Team offer some appointments which are bookable on the day, first come first served; they are released at 8am each morning and take place at Collegiate and City.

You can book any appointments with the Careers Team via UniHub or telephone Careers Connect (the Careers Centre) on 0114 225 3752

Drop in Appointments

There is no drop in on 30 October 2018 – they will then continue to take place in the Saunders seating area between 11am and 1pm each Tuesday from 6 November until ChristmasThese will be ‘first come, first served’, max 20 minutes at busy times but should hopefully give a chance to answer any burning questions, or quick application/CV checks.
