About Andrea Hilditch

What areas of service should I ask you about?
As a Careers Consultant, I can help you explore what’s important to you including looking at your ideas, plans and decisions. I also help with CVs and cover letters, with applications and interviews. I work within the curriculum too, so you may see me in your classes, depending on your subject. I also love to support students with their submissions for the Chester Difference Award.

What piece of advice would you give to a Level 6 student about to graduate?
Come and speak to us if you’re unsure of your next steps, it’s amazing how much progress we can help you make in a short time. Just don’t put things off – we’re a friendly team, all willing to help you.

What piece of advice would you give to a Level 4 student just starting University?
Enjoy your time! It’s a time for making new friends and new experiences, having a go at things you haven’t tried – some of these experiences can be life-changing. Come and see us from Level 4 onwards as many times as you need and make sure you’re familiar with CareerHub where you can find appointments, information and more.

What motivates you in your work?
I love to hear students’ stories and helping them to build their next chapter. It’s a real privilege to work with students – each person is important to me.

How do you relax when not at work?
I paint in my art studio (please do feel free to talk to me about your art / design if you’re on a creative course!) and I love to sing in a local pop choir, so I love being on stage.

What is your biggest career achievement?
Being in this role is such an achievement. I have worked with students at another university for 12 years, but I’m really enjoying working here. The team here is so supportive of each other and of the students and graduates. 

With which academic departments do you work?
I work with Art & Design, Academic and Professional Programmes, and Theology and Religious Studies.
