Careers works collaboratively with a range of academic and support staff to help enhance student employability and career transition. We are always keen to explore new ideas and initiatives.
Improving student employability
We currently operate a 'hub and spoke' system of service delivery. Our central programme of career development workshops, events, and one-to-one career consultations, delivered from the John Henry Brookes Building on the Headington Campus, is supported by proactive liaison with each faculty. This includes the delivering of careers education within teaching programmes.
Each faculty has a named link Careers Consultant.
- Business: Euan McCall
- Health and Life Sciences: Jo Moyle (Marston Rd and Swindon) and Emma Robinson
- Humanities and Social Sciences: Pete Smillie
- Technology, Design and Environment: Marija Murthwaite
To contact your link person to discuss employability and careers education, please email email@example.com or phone Careers on +44 (0) 1865 484670.
A wide range of employability and careers information resources are available to support students, via our Careers Resources portal.
Staff can access the portal using your Student Information login details. Please contact us if you have any difficulties.
