Welcome to your Careers and Employability team here at the University of Brighton. Many of the team have one-to-one appointments to discuss any and all things careers and employability during your time as a student here. You can find and book those here.
The rest of the team are on campus, present in all locatons, but based out of the Careers Office in the Cockroft building. You can stop by, any time, you'll likely have the pleasure of meeting Vicky on our front desk, who can assist you from there.
I lead the careers and employability work at the university through our Brighton Works activities and manage the Careers and Employability team.
I lead all placements, internships, and volunteering teams across the university (excluding Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies placements).
I work with students from the School of Architecture, Technology and Engineering and the School of Applied Sciences to obtain placement years, summer internships and insight experiences.
I coordinate careers events for students and graduates. This includes careers fairs, panels, forums, virtual fairs and talks, and employer events throughout the year.
I work with students to offer support with finding jobs and making successful applications.
I work with colleagues across the university to embed employer/industry-led activities in the curriculum and ensure we as a university build effective partnerships for the benefit of our students and graduates.
The University of Brighton held its first-ever Local Jobs and Opportunities Fair earlier this month.
Applications have now opened for a hugely exciting opportunity that enables you to receive hands-on research experience on projects covering all disciplines across the University of Brighton – you can apply today.
GVI (international volunteering, gap year, and internships provider) is hosting a virtual Open Day on Saturday 22 April, and all are welcome.
