Careers & Employability

Staff

Using the Careers Service – a Guide for Academic Departments The Careers Service works with academic departments to provide an information, guidance and support service for students, postgraduates and recent graduates from the University of Lincoln

This section of the website is devoted to live Q&A sessions with our own advisers or external employers. We will promote the Live Q&A’s in advance and you can also access session archives below.

We help academic departments by providing:

  • Bespoke industry informed sessions designed and delivered for particular courses/Schools/Colleges
  • A named Careers Adviser responsible for liaising with each academic department
  • Consultation services to support with the development of careers education provision within Schools and programmes
  • Support for career and employability skills within the curriculum in the form of talks and workshops
  • Employer led expertise in relation to skills development, work based learning, career planning and graduate opportunities
  • An informed view of the graduate labour market overall or for specific industries and its requirements
  • Support for developing links to organisations that can provide opportunities to students including joint meetings with employers
  • Regular updates on Careers Service events including skills sessions, fairs, employer presentations, talks and workshops
  • Support and information for our on line resources
  • Regular newsletter to ensure the information you receive is current
  • Staff Training Sessions on all career and employability topics
  • Resources for Personal tutoring
  • Provide information on the destination of your Graduates from the Destination of Leavers in Higher Education (DLHE ) reports
  • Support and information for developing entrepreneurship opportunities for students
  • Point of contact for you to send employer requests to and job vacancies you receive

How our academic departments can help:

Talk to us  – we rely on the support and involvement of departments to help us deliver an excellent level of service to students and we are always ready to discuss and develop new initiatives with you. If you can, please:

  • Provide a nominated member of staff with responsibility for employability
  • Encourage students to think about their careers as early as possible (but especially before the start of their final year). Some students may need to make early applications in their final year for graduate training schemes, explore our Careers timeline
  • Provide an opportunity for us to deliver a careers induction talk (15mins) to your students as the very minimum
  • Wherever possible, careers input to the curriculum as an integral part of the timetable; ideally as part of an established module
  • If available support the Careers Service with rooms and facilities for departmental careers events and publicity to students
  • Provide a link from the departmental website to the Careers Service website
  • Promote careers events including careers fairs, alumni talks and employer incentives to students in your department
  • Share with Careers and Employability when employers make direct contact with the department
  • Encourage Students to become more aware of how they can develop their employability, we can offer support with this through the Lincoln Award
  • Provide information about additional departmental contacts, for example administrative staff with responsibility for particular schools
