The Employability Team

The Computing, Engineering, and the Built Environment (CEBE) Employability Team supports students to gain internships and placements in roles related to their course in order to improve their employability when they complete their degree.

What we do:

  • Liaise and work with local and national employers to source and promote opportunities.
  • Provide 1:1 support to students, which includes CV and application advice, running mock interviews and advising on assessment centres and psychometric tests.
  • Run group sessions for students and organise sessions with employers on campus.
