One to one appointments to chat to a Careers and Employability Adviser from the Student Futures team are available up to 23 December at 4.30pm.  Before then, we have online appointments (via Microsoft Teams) or telephone appointments available Monday – Friday from 9am-4.30pm for students from any programme or level of study.  We then reopen after the Winter break for appointments on 4 January.  We have a good availability of appointments over the next week so please do book in!   

The team is available to support you whatever stage of your career journey you are at, whether you are still exploring what direction you want to take, you have a clear idea of your next steps or anywhere in between.  If you want your CV, application form or personal statement checked by an expert, would like guidance on your next steps or ideas about which careers to pursue, advice on work experience, postgraduate study, teaching options, or any other careers-related matter, booking a chat couldn’t be easier. 

Simply visit our website and follow the instructions provided.  Some appointments are available to book online or you can connect with to a member of the team who will book an appointment for you; simply email or telephone 0151 231 3719. 

If there are specific circumstances in which a face-to-face appointment is more appropriate to your needs, please email with this request. 

For any students who are interested in setting up their own business, scaling up their business or freelancing, or just want to explore a business idea, email
