Careers and Employability Service

Your Careers and Employability Service is fully operational and all services are available

The Careers and Employability Team are on hand and ready to help you! All services are available online or by telephone. On this page you will find information on accessing our service and if you need any further information please email us.

The Careers and Employability Service provides students with the information, advice and guidance they need before, during and after graduating from the University of Suffolk. The service is available to all current and prospective students, as well as to graduates of the University of Suffolk within three years of their graduation.

The commitment to careers and employability across the curriculum is an important characteristic of the courses offered at the University of Suffolk and students are encouraged to get involved in exciting opportunities that can greatly enhance employability. If you are a graduate that has not previously accessed FutureMe and created your alumni account, or you have any problems logging in, please visit Alumni Access to FutureMe, or email the Careers team.  There are also work experience opportunities with the Micro-Placement Scheme.

How to prepare for life after university

At the University of Suffolk, you will have the opportunity to consider your future career, reflect on your previous experiences and prepare to find employment. The Careers team offer confidential advice, mock interviews, and provide the opportunity for students to realise their vocational potential.  Support is available to develop important careers related skills and knowledge, such as CV design and interview techniques. In addition to our face-to-face services, students and alumni also have access 24/7 to our interactive online career development learning platform, FutureMe

We hold careers events and fairs, workshops and presentations which enable students and potential employers to network, and these events are arranged each academic year. Read about Coderus Meet and Greet and meet our University of Suffolk graduate who is now working there after completing a summer internship with them during his studies.

Up-to-date information about jobs, internships and graduate careers is also available through the Online Jobs Board (with new jobs added every week), and our variety of social media accounts listed at the end of the page. If you want to know more about internships, take a look at the stories from our students and graduates that have completed internships.
