The Careers & Employability team holds central responsibility for the University’s Careers Education Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) provision for all students and graduates. We are a professionally qualified team, who work to support our three key client groups – students, staff and employers.
Ultimately, we support our students through a combination of central and curriculum based lectures, workshop, presentations and events; in addition to bespoke one to one careers advice and guidance for students. Furthermore, we hold and develop strong relations with local, regional and national employers, and proactively engage with our employer partners to both involve them in our Careers Education packages as well as generating opportunities for our students and graduates, through consultation services.
We are now looking to appoint a Student Advisory Board to assist and contribute to the development of our services. We would like the board to include students of all disciplines and all year groups, from undergraduates to post graduates and international students.
Why Get Involved?
We are keen to offer the very best ‘value added’ services to all of our students and graduates, to ensure that you are able to make the most of your time here at Lincoln.
In addition, the increased competition within the graduate labour market has never made it more important for students to engage with effective career planning as early as possible in their university studies.
This is your opportunity to tell us what you would like us to offer, and to represent your fellow students in the shaping and development of our Careers & Employability Services.
What Will You Do?
We would anticipate that the group will meet once a semester initially to discuss key issues of importance to both the students and the Careers & Employability Team. You may be consulted on issues such as:
• Student Engagement
• Effective Marketing
• Web and Social Media presence and development
• Careers Education Programmes
• Access to the service
• Employer Engagement Activity
• School Engagement
…and many more…
Your role will be to offer the student perspective on all of these issues, to gather feedback on the services we currently offer, and to act as a student representative/ advocate for the services that we do offer amongst your fellow students – ‘a campus champion’.
