Improving student employability

  • Work with us to improve student employability

    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.

    Service delivery

    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:  
    • 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
    • For support with improving employability for students from under-represented groups within your faculty: Iona Colvin
