Careers and Employment

From first year through to final year and beyond graduation, we are here to help.

Come along and speak to us to make the most of your time here at University. We can help you find relevant experience and gain the transferable skills that employers are looking for.

In light of COVID-19, the careers service have currently suspended all face to face appointments. However, we are still keen to support you through these uncertain times. To continue our support offer, we are now offering specialist careers guidance appointments via video chat. For general career enquiries our Social Media channels (@NUCareers) will be constantly updated with live workshops, vacancies and information to support you over the coming weeks/months. 

On Careers Online we will also house a live text chat daily Mon-Fri from 1-4pm.  

If you would like to book a careers guidance video appointment, please e-mail NUCareers@Northumbria.ac.uk  

After requesting a Guidance Appointment you will receive an e-mail from a specialist careers adviser who will negotiate an appointment time with you. They will then send you a video link (with no login required) shortly before your appointment.From this link you will have the option to disable the video and the audio will remain (should you wish not to be on video). 

We will be using ‘Zoom’ for these appointments and it will work in any browser on a PC/laptop (no login required). Alternatively, there is also a free mobile app for mobile/tablet devices should you wish to chat using such devices. They are linked below:
