Careers and Employability

We provide careers and employability support throughout your studies and after graduation.

Whether you have no idea what you want to do yet or you know where your future lies, our Careers and Employability service can help you throughout your career journey.

Get advice from a professional team of specialist Career Advisers each linked to Academic Schools and available weekdays for consultation.

Take part in a wide range of online sessions covering career choice, job search, applications, interviews procedures and assessment centres via our online platform Your Career Journey.

We have a team of Work Experience Officers who actively source and promote work experience insights and internships. Many of our degree programmes also have an element of work experience built in.

Skills events are delivered in and out of the curriculum with a focus on developing skills while in university and articulating those skills successfully in future applications.

If you have an idea for a business or social enterprise, the Enterprise and Start-up team can bring your ideas to life with expert advice and guidance.

You also have the opportunity to become mentors to other students - a very popular scheme which encourages skills development in both mentees and mentors.

This employability award enables you to gain recognition for work experience, mentoring, societies, volunteering and part-time work and develop key employability skills. The Award is open to all students and can be completed flexibly alongside your studies via our online platform Your Career Journey.

Hundreds of student and graduate recruiters target Cardiff University annually as part of their recruitment campaigns and we work closely with these recruiters to provide the vital link between them and you, by offering:

  • Online Jobs Board - advertising vacancies
  • Careers fairs - both general and sector specific
  • Employer events to showcase their opportunities.

Cardiff University has an excellent graduate employment record. Graduates of all disciplines are in demand across a broad range of careers and we remain an institution targeted by national and international employers.
