The Careers Service delivers a range of virtual sessions and online support to help students develop skills and confidence, and provide access to job opportunities.
*These provisions may change.
Edge Hill was one of the first universities to establish a whole university approach to employability, creating strategic links with employers to provide employment opportunities for students.
A range of support is offered to students and graduates. Working with academic departments, employability is embedded into the curriculum, which can include careers modules, employer guest speakers and events.
To help prepare for the workplace, students can make use of online tools, practise assessments and psychometric testing, and access virtual, face-to-face and other support.
To ensure students are ready to compete for jobs, skills-building services are available as well as graduate listings on the online vacancy system. Links to employers provide excellent networking opportunities.
As well as the vacancy portal, the Careers Service supports extra-curricular activities to enhance students’ future careers prospects. Informal mentoring is provided by alumni in a range of ways.
Virtual volunteering (Volunteer from Home) and internship opportunities are available to enhance CVs. Placements have continued within the NHS and teaching sectors, or where organisations have adapted to the challenges of the pandemic.
*These provisions may change.
There are many volunteering opportunities advertised through the careers online vacancy service.
Volunteering advisers will help students source the right volunteering opportunities, and support applications and CV writing.
It is often possible to obtain funding to help with volunteering via the university's Student Opportunity Fund.
Many Edge Hill courses offer placement opportunities to enable students to gain practical skills and experience.
The careers team can help students discuss options and secure placements, internships and insight days.
