Our Careers and Employability Service is the gateway to careers advice and guidance, a direct connection to qualified HE Careers Advisers and HE employability specialists.

Accessible through our Careers Portal, we offer careers planning support, work opportunities and extracurricular employability events, writing CVs, personal statements, and job applications.

As the home for careers education, we are a place to find self-directed careers education tools and learning resources to develop skills and confidence, including HEFCW funded targeted employability, and graduate support.

  • Our Services

    Career Guidance – Access 1-1 careers guidance appointments with our Careers Advisers and HE specialists. Careers advisers are available to help individuals to explore options open to them and make choices about what they do next. Careers Advisers work with people to understand their motivations and values in life, where they see themselves in their future, what life they want to have and how they can get there. They help to explore barriers and formulate plans of actions to achieve life goals. Careers advisers understand the local, regional and national labour markets and can guide on where growth and decline will be in occupational areas. They can also help individuals to understand their previous experience, skills, knowledge and expertise in order to position themselves successfully for new opportunities. Bookable appointments, E-Guidance, and careers-drop ins (ASK reception) are available. Users are encouraged to use the appointment finder triage tool to direct to the most appropriate support.

    Employment opportunities – The university’s only students and graduate dedicated opportunities board. Gain access to our online directory of vacancies including graduate jobs, part-time jobs, vacation work, voluntary work, internships and placements.

    Events – Employability events including our series of Community Connect events, and employer and industry insights.

We also recommend suitable external resources during guidance such as LinkedIn Learning, the Pay Index, WorkFinder, and the Business Graduate Association.

    CV and careers document reviewing service – Once our CV Pathway has been completed, careers documents including CV’s, cover letters and applications can be reviewed, with feedback from a Careers Adviser. Targeted employability student support – HEFCW funded targeted employability support.

  • Current students

    Our service aims to develop skills and confidence, linked to the University’s Skills Framework.

    Linked to your programme of study, our Careers Advisers also offer employability support in curriculum, through Career Development Learning sessions. Speak to your tutor if you are interested in group sessions to suit your needs.

    Students are pre-registered to our Careers Portal and can access support upon enrolment for the full duration of your studies. Log in with your student email and password. Students leaving Wrexham University without an award are entitled to use the Careers Centre for a period of up to 3 months after their study ceases.
