The careers team at UCFB is a unique and tailored career development department exclusively open to all UCFB students and alumni.

We now have dedicated careers coaches and assistant career coaches within our teams at both campus’ that are able to support students in finding part time work alongside their studies.  At the start of the 18/19 year as part of fresher’s week we held a jobs fair and invited in local businesses who were actively recruiting students for part time work and will have a similar approach this year.

The careers team are available for students to access throughout their time here for additional support in finding opportunities and also support with applying for jobs by offering CV support, mock interview sessions etc.

The team are active in sourcing opportunities for students and actively promote these via our social media channels and on the EE student portal and have had good successes with this.

With dedicated space within the Citizens Suite at UCFB Etihad Campus and within the business lounge at Wembley Stadium, the careers team grants you access to a number of additional supportive programmes to aid your educational development and career goals, which includes the use of resources such as books and meetings with our careers advice and guidance team.
