Career Development

Whether you are planning to remain in your current area of work or you are looking for alternative career options, it's also important to think about your longer term career aims.

Completing a Personal Development Plan can be an important starting point in this process.

If you would like support on managing your career progression and development Personal and Professional Development (PPD) offers a wide range of courses and some guidance in this area.

Although primarily a resource for students, the University Careers Service offers many reference resources to help you make informed decisions about your career pathway.

From acting as a sounding board for your thoughts and ideas to offering informed opinions based on their own experiences, a mentor can be an invaluable asset to you when planning your next career move. Visit Mentoring for guidance and advice. Your department may also have a mentoring scheme so check with your Departmental Administrator.
