Career resources available in the Careers Service


Want to know what the best companies are to work for?  Maybe you’re interested in the major players in your field.  We have free career directories in a variety of subjects that you can take away with you.  Our career guides from TargetJobs, Prospects and Inside Careers offer advice on applying for jobs, CVs and cover letters, interviews and assessment centres, in addition to information on internships and graduate schemes with the major companies in each field.

You can also pick up the Rate My Placement Top Undergraduate Employers, The Job Crowd Top Companies for Graduates to Work For, Gradjobs Directory, Times Top 100 or Guardian 300 for more detailed information on the best companies to work for in the UK and internationally.

For Law students, the Training Contract & Pupillage Handbook is essential to get started with your applications.  You can also pick up the Best in Law 2015 for the top employers, or the Beginner’s Guide to a Career in Law if you’re finding navigating routes into a legal career confusing.

Brenda Welch

I'm Brenda, and I'm one of the first people you'll see when you come into the Careers office. I moved to the UK to study Library Science, and now I'm in charge of making sure we have the best information on jobs and careers for you! After working in universities in the US and purchasing for the manufacturing sector, I can help you think about moving abroad or jobs in sectors you might not have thought of. I'll be writing about new resources online and in the Careers Centre, and lesser known job fields.
