How can I access the service?
You can make use of our services by speaking to or emailing our Office Coordinator (Matt).
Matt can help you book a 15 or 30 minute appointment to speak with a Careers Consultant (ideal for CV and application feedback, or as an initial career planning discussion), or you can book an appointment to have a longer in-depth careers discussion or even take part in a specially tailored mock interview.
Matt can also suggest appropriate materials for you within our extensive careers library (includes reference, take-away and electronic materials, many of which are also available on SIMMSpace).
