We work with all staff and employers with an interest in and an influence over students’ career preparations. Our efforts are focused on students and we invest heavily in developing their employability and enterprise skills.  Our student centred services are available from the Careers and Employability Service, open all year round.   

The Careers and Employability Service supports students and graduates providing information and advice on part-time jobs, career planning, work experience, volunteering, placements, enterprise and graduate jobs. We work with course teams to develop new ways of teaching and assessing students to develop their employability skills and enterprising mind-sets. 

To find out more about how students and graduates can access our service visit our Services for you pages.

We are located at the Careers and Employabilty Centre, 28 Guildhall Walk, PO1 2DD.

Our Enterprise team and student entrepreneurs have dedicated facilities in the Innovation Space at 1 Hampshire Terrace, PO1 2QF - a venue they share with other aspiring Portsmouth start-ups.
