We offer an extensive careers and employability service working with local London employers, supporting you to explore, develop and succeed in your career goals.
Opportunity for everyone
At City we invest in your employability from the start. Our award-winning professional mentoring programme offers you an intensive one-to-one mentoring programme over six months. This is available to you, whatever programme you are studying.
Micro-placements give you real world experience of a potential career during your studies through a four-week summer internship. We have worked with over 130 employers from multinational businesses to local start-ups.
Employability modules embedded into your course provide practical workplace skills and contribute to your final degree.
We can help to financially support your studies and give paid work experience through an on-site temporary job agency. Unitemps hires temporary workers for the University and other local employers. In 2019 we paid almost £1 million to over 3,300 students from a diverse mix of backgrounds.
Explore. Develop. Succeed
Our employability roadmap puts you on the best track to career success.
Explore: gives you support to consider your options, hone your ideas and focus on your preferred career.
Develop: allows you to start communicating what you can bring to an employer through experiences which demonstrate your employability skills.
Succeed: delivers the support you need to stand out against the competition when applying for jobs, even for three years after you leave us.
