Get careers advice
A careers adviser can help you with a wide range of issues, whatever stage you are at in the career planning process. You may know what you want to do and need help planning how to achieve it, or you might have just started thinking about your career and need some direction and encouragement.
We are happy to help you with CVs and application forms, but we do not provide a CV writing service and cannot spend time correcting your spelling and grammar.
Find out if you are eligible to get advice from us
You can get advice from a careers adviser by email, at a drop in session or by booking an appointment.
Advice by email is ideal if you can’t come into the Careers Service or you have a simple question that doesn’t need discussion between you and the adviser. We promise to reply to your question within five days but will usually respond quicker. If we feel that your enquiry is too complex for this service we may ask you to see an adviser in person.
Access advice by email
Drop in sessions
Drop in sessions are for quick queries and updates, and giving you feedback on your CV. You can see an adviser for up to 15 minutes and you don’t need to book. Please note that drop in sessions are not suitable for discussing confidential matters as they are held in an open area.
Drop in session times
Appointments allow you to get in-depth guidance from an adviser. You will need to book by phoning 01642 342277 or calling in to see us. If you need us to make any special arrangements, please tell us when you book. We are unable to book appointments by email.

If you no longer need or are unable to attend the appointment, please let us know as soon as you can so that we can offer the appointment to someone else.
Anything you tell us and any advice we give will only be discussed with other people if you have given your permission. Your careers adviser may ask to discuss your case with colleagues to ensure you receive the best possible advice. For exceptions to this, please ask to see the Student Services confidentiality policy.
