Careers and Employability Centre

Graduates

As a Sussex graduate, you have full access to the Careers and Employability Centre for three years after you graduate. We're open throughout the summer for information and advice, and we'll also be available to talk to you at graduation.

Accessing CareerHub

Your student CareerHub account closes when your course ends (end of June for undergraduates). Your graduate account opens automatically, and you will receive login instructions to your personal email address, as you will lose access to your Sussex email.

Your username will generally be your old Sussex username, but you will need to create a new password within 3 days of receiving the email.

If you did not receive the email, or have a new personal email address, contact careers@sussex.ac.uk or call 01273 678429.

Use our comprehensive online resources to help you think about and research your future career, including our job sector guides, using your degree, interests and motivations and further study pages.

We advertise hundreds of graduate opportunities on CareerHub. Log in to browse the vacancies and see our Graduate Work page for more information about graduate jobs, internships and schemes.

We offer paid Sussex Santander Internships for Graduates for 10 weeks with small to medium sized UK companies. If you've found your own opportunity we may also be able to help fund it. Contact us to find out more.

Sussex Graduate Programme

The Sussex Graduate Programme offers new graduates the opportunity to do a paid 12 or 13-month internship with a professional services department at the University. Roles are usually advertised between March and July.

Entrepreneurs and StartUp Sussex

Do you have an idea for a commercial or social enterprise? The StartUp Sussex Entrepreneurship competition offers support and possible funding. Graduates can take part in the competition for three years after graduation.

Careers appointments

We offer 20-minute appointments with a Careers Consultant either in person or by phone. These can be used for:

  • CV feedback and application review
  • Career exploration
  • Getting work experience and finding placements
  • Graduate opportunities and further study
  • Interview preparation

You can make an appointment via CareerHub.

Advance appointments can be booked up to two weeks ahead and on-the-day appointments can be booked from 9am each weekday. We aim to be as flexible and open as possible. However, we may have to restrict access to appointments if we feel that the service is being over-used.

You can also receive information and guidance online via Ask a Question
