The Information Team

The Information Team is the first point of contact for all enquiries to Careers.

We provide a skilled triage service to discuss your queries with you, gather information, and determine the most appropriate form of support. Within the Team, we can help with a wide range of your careers-related needs including CV and covering letter reviews, and initial information and advice on career planning and job searching. We can also help you navigate our extensive resources and can signpost you to the most relevant and up to date sources of careers information.

If more in-depth advice and guidance is required, we may refer you to meet with one of Careers Consultants and we will liaise with you to arrange a suitable time.

You can ask us anything and we'll either help or point you towards someone who can!
