Support for Societies

Would you like The Careers Service to share career hints and tips with your society members?

We can help you!

We are taking expressions of interest for workshops on a variety of key topics, including:

  • CV building
  • Cover Letter & Applications
  • ‘What can I do with a “…” degree?’
  • Finding opportunities with a “…” degree
  • Finding experience
  • Interview skills
  • Psychometric tests and assessment centres
  • LinkedIn
  • Networking (How to build your network and how networking can help in your jobsearch)

Still wondering if the Support for Societies scheme is right for your group? Here are some of the benefits to working with the Careers Service to deliver a session:

  • Increase the variety of social events in your calendar
  • Boost existing skills and get expert help to enhance your CV or cover letters
  • Get your members prepared for the world of work outside of the classroom
  • A chance to network with professionals in your subject area
  • Help your members recognise the social and employability value of being a part of your team
  • Opportunities to further publicise your society events

Contact us

If you are interested in commissioning a session for your society, or if you have any questions or further ideas about how we can help you, please email and we will review your request and aim to reply within 5 working days.

Please submit your requests as early as possible, particularly if you have a specific date in mind for a session, so we can do our best to facilitate as many workshops as possible for interested societies.

We're also looking for students to write blogs on how being part of a society has helped their employability. This is a great opportunity to get your voice heard / writing published on the web, for an award winning university careers service - contact us if interested.
