Award winning employability initiatives

We have won national awards for delivering outstanding services including work placements, social enterprise support, commitment to the employability agenda, support for student entrepreneurship and sustainability learning for employability. Our Green Consultants initiative is an industry-recognised, award-winning training programme involving facilitated learning for students interested in pursuing a career with an environmental or sustainability focus.

The Career Zone has offered me great support in my applications and confidence in my interview techniques throughout my time in Exeter. 

In the first year I attended a lot of CV, cover letter and career development events run through the Career Zone with companies themselves coming in, whom I went on to apply to. With sponsored events and fairs it was a great way to start developing my networking skills as well as get a flavour for the variety of roles on offer after my undergraduate study. As well as external applications, I also completed the Exeter Award and became a Career Zone Information Assistant in my third year to become more involved with the support the Career Zone offers to students.
