1-2-1 Careers Appointments
We have a dedicated PGR careers consultant, Kenneth Howgill, working with us 2 days a week from November 2021. PGRs can book an appointment with Kenneth to discuss your careers options, get feedback on a job application or help with an interview.
All appointments are 50 minutes long and can be booked via Inkpath. Currently appointments are taking place via Microsoft Teams to ensure all our PGRs can access this support – regardless of where they are based. Once you have booked an appointment, you will received a confirmation email asking you to email a copy of your CV and information about what you want to discuss to our PGR Career Coach.
All bookings, including repeat appointments, must be booked by Inkpath. Appointment bookings cannot be taken via email.
Appointments are proving popular, and as such we are asking PGRs to join our central waiting list when there are no longer any appointments available. Those on the waiting list will be given early access to the next round of appointments before they are advertised.
Due to the popularity of these appointments, and the limited resource, it is crucial you cancel your appointment on Inkpath as soon as you can if you are unable to attend. This means the appointment can be made available to another PGR.
If you do not attend your appointment without letting us know, you will be added to the bottom of the waiting list.
