The Careers Group is now recruiting for Careers Consultants to join their renowned service. 

  • Do you want a role where you can help other people to fulfil their potential and where you are provided with constant opportunities to develop yourself professionally?

  • Do you want to work in a forward-focussed organisation surrounded by enthusiastic, innovative and supportive colleagues?

  • Are you a career changer keen to be trained in developing high-level skills in careers guidance, coaching, teaching and strategic relationship building?

What will you be doing?

As a Careers Consultant, you will help students and graduates to acquire the skills necessary to choose their future path, find employment and to manage their career successfully. You will achieve this through a combination of in- and extra-curricular teaching and one-to-one guidance, both delivered remotely and in person. You will also be required to develop online resources and learning materials. A key part of this role will be for you to build strategic relationships with academic staff, alumni and other professionals inside and outside of the university careers team in order to design and deliver the best possible employability support.

 In applying for this role, you will be applying to become a Careers Consultant in The Careers Group, and to be allocated through The Careers Group to perform that role at Queen Mary. Queen Mary University of London is a Russell Group institution and one of the UK's leading research universities. Working at Queen Mary means being part of a unique, global University with a long and distinctive history. Our founding institutions were set up to provide hope and opportunity for the less privileged and otherwise under-represented and the university today remains committed to improving social justice. With staff and students from over 160 nationalities, drawn from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds, the University is one of the most diverse higher education institutions in the world.

 90 per cent of our home students are from state schools, 59 per cent are Black Asian Minority Ethnic, 42 per cent are the first in their families to go into higher education and over 30 per cent are from households where the household income, as assessed by Student Finance England, is less than £15,000. We are incredibly proud of our diverse student body, and our aim is for our staff to be equally diverse – therefore we would really welcome your application. We are open to part time and full time applications.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity in our workplace. We do not discriminate, and work to create an inclusive culture across our business.
