Careers and Employability Centre coming soon! More posts to follow.

This is the first of regular series of postings aimed at keeping you up-to-date on the development of the new Careers and Employability Centre.

After many months of planning and consultation, we’re almost at the stage when the building formerly known as Blackwells will start its makeover, here is a Floorplan– as soon as we have more details of the planned works, I’ll post them here.

As you can see with the ‘before’ shots below, a fair amount of work needs to be done by the beginning of October – I will keep updating the photographs to show progress over the next couple of months.

Ground Floor: access to the Centre will be via the ground floor (entrance on Hallam Square).  Staff from the Careers and Employment  Service will be on hand to help with employability related queries including help and support in finding and applying for part-time and graduate jobs.

Students will also be able to book in to see a careers advisor or employment adviser.

First Floor:  four interview rooms will be available for appointments and for employers  who may wish to use the facilities to interview students.  There will be a large open space which can be divided into 2 smaller spaces which can be used for presentations and events.

This aim of this space is to be as flexible as possible –  chairs and tables can be reconfigured depending on the activity taking place.

The space on both floors is very much aimed at  ‘delivery’  and will therefore not include staff offices.
