Jobs and careers

Graduate work placements

Now that you are graduating, why not give yourself a competitive advantage by using your skills and knowledge working on a short-term project with a business in Cumbria or the north west region. If this is of interest, please register your details with the ‘Jobs and placements’ portal which can be found at the Business Placement Service Team web pages where you can also view job placement opportunities.

Careers and Employability service

Whether or not you've found a job, our Careers Service provides information dedicated to graduates for up to three years after you complete your course at the University of Cumbria, and it's free.

We can provide information, advice and guidance on choosing a career path, finding a job, researching post graduate study, interview techniques or developing your skills.
