Welcome to the Careers Service for students and recent graduates of The University of Manchester.

The Careers Service offers support and advice throughout your time at the University of Manchester, to help you make the most of your time here and best prepare you for your future.

There are many ways to get support and access information, advice and guidance

Appointments are provided on campus in a variety of locations, and online, to allow flexibility and accessibility for both students and graduates. Providing a range of On Demand online services allows us to support greater numbers with information advice and guidance. Please watch out for on campus drop-ins or events via CareerConnect

If you want to search for opportunities, we have our very own job platform called CareerConnect. You can use this to search for vacancies and events as well as book appointments. You can also access our excellent resources here on the website.

Throughout the year we run a variety of themed events that help develop your skills, build your networks and explore your options. These includes skills sessions, employer workshops, fairs and events where you can meet alumni. Our events and workshops may be delivered online or on campus, you can find past sessions on YouTube.

if you’re thinking about doing a postgraduate degree, we also offer a range of support and advice on the different courses and funding opportunities.

You will receive regular information and updates on our events and opportunities, through your monthly Careers email and via social media. Make sure you read these updates and follow us online, so you know what’s going on.

You can continue to use our Careers Service for two years after graduation. And if you don’t have a job lined up, or would like more experience in a particular sector, you could also apply for Manchester Graduate Talent. The programme offers paid graduate-level positions in Greater Manchester, allowing you to develop your career in the UK's best city to live in.

Whether you've just arrived at the University or are returning for the start of yet another year, we're delighted to see you.
