We work hard to ensure that you graduate with the essentials skills and qualifications needed to stand out to future employers.

If you have a question about your career, our dedicated Careers and Employability team can help. Their guidance services have been nationally commended – the team holds a national AGCAS runner-up award for employer engagement, and its Venture Entrepreneurship Programme has been shortlisted for a 2016 entrepreneurship award.

Meet Our Career Consultants

University can help you get one step closer to your dream job. At Warrington, we do all we can to ensure that your CV is in shipshape and ready to wow employers. If you want specialist career advice, our Career Consultants offer free, expert guidance throughout your course. 

You can also make the most of our free Enhance Your Employability training sessions. These help students gain the key communication and leadership skills employers are looking for. 

Links With Local Businesses

Our partnerships with notable businesses both locally and nationally, enable students to get a taste of professional life and in turn, forge eff ective working relationships with key employers themselves. It’s an excellent opportunity to discover first-hand what businesses want, and learn the skills needed to stand out in a competitive industry.

Earn While You Learn

If you’re interested in part-time work alongside your studies, we can help you find it. We offer a range of vacancies through our central online CareerHub. In partnership with Santander Universities, we also run the Chester Internship Programme (CIP), which enables you to undertake a paid internship with an SME during the summer holidays.

The Chester Difference Award

Set yourself apart from competitors with the Chester Difference Award (CDA). It acknowledges all the incredible extracurricular work you’ve achieved during your time at university (be that voluntary, fundraising or as part of a society) and rewards you for it. Employers appreciate a candidate who goes the extra mile.
