Careers and employability

Your future career prospects are important, and we're here to help you prepare for the world of work.

Our Employment Bureau can help you find part-time work. Meanwhile, our Employability Service offers careers advice and organises events including employment workshops and company visits.

Work while you study

Register with our Employment Bureau for part-time work to fit around your studies.

Our Employment Bureau has its own online jobs board with vacancies for current students and graduates.

Most of the work is on campus, so it’s easy to fit in to your schedule. You can register online with the Employment Bureau before you arrive at Anglia Ruskin but you’ll need to visit us with your passport to show you’re eligible to start working in the UK.

Choosing to work during your studies not only gives you some extra income, but also the chance to meet new people, develop your employability skills, and add some experience to your CV. If you’re an international student there may be restrictions on your working hours as stated on your visa.

We’ll be here for you after you graduate, too. The team recruits for a variety of permanent graduate positions in the local area, so use your time here wisely and don’t forget to add everything you do to your CV.

Careers advice

Got a career in mind, but not sure which course will help you get there? Or maybe you’d like to discuss your future career options?

We offer one-to-one appointments with our experienced careers advisers via phone, email or face to face. This support is available to you before you join us, throughout your studies and after you graduate too. Email to book an appointment.

Build your career

Our Employability Service arranges employer events and workshops to help you develop essential job-related skills and make you more appealing to future employers. Come and see our Faculty Employability Advisers for help with your CV, job applications, interview preparation, and anything else to help you prepare for the world of work.

You can also explore our Employability Service portal for a huge amount of online careers resources, and the chance to start working towards the Anglia Ruskin Employability Programme.
