The Careers and Employability team gave me CV tips and interview advice which helped me land my dream job after graduation!

Since graduating in 2014, Charles has gone on to enjoy a successful career in the health industry and now works for the United Nations’ World Food Programme. Check out his experience in Chester and beyond below:

“My childhood dream was always to work at a developmental organisation. However, I had no idea how I would achieve this until I started my programme at the University of Chester.

The Professional Perspectives module gave me a rare opportunity to interact with leading experts in my desired field. This experience helped me to establish contacts and understand what is required of me to excel in the profession. Tutors at the University were supportive and friendly as they continued to provide guidance on how I could secure my desired job after I graduated and left the UK. One of my lecturers had a wealth of work experience in African context and he provided me with some invaluable knowledge.

Also, the Careers and Employability team gave me CV tips and interview advice which helped me land my dream job after graduation.”

The role Charles refers to is Nutrition Programme Associate at the United Nations’ World Food Programme.

“I provide nutrition support to malnourished children and seeing them recover is very rewarding and often reminds of what my role is all about:

 Saving lives and changing lives.

My duties include:

  • Supporting routine food security and nutrition need assessments
  • Supporting capacity strengthening and coaching of local health workers
  • Facilitating training for Maternal, Infant and Young Children’s feeding practices
  • Supporting development of intervention proposals and provide input for quarterly donor reports.

To sum up, University of Chester has a rewarding educational environment and is a great location for international students!
