  • Contact you regarding your profile on our volunteer database, including the status of student applications to a volunteer role

  • Enquire about involvement in student development and recruitment activities
  • Seek your feedback via occasional surveys
  • Contact you about any changes to the terms and conditions relating to the services we offer.

Careers and Employability

The University uses an external company, CareerHub, as our data processor.  They provide us with a database to allow us, as data controllers, to contact you and to administer our services. We will hold your professional contact information on CareerHub on an ongoing basis unless you request us to remove them for any reason.

If you have any questions, or wish to be removed from our database, please contact

Work Based Learning
