Careers and Employability Centre

University staff

We work with staff to support students across the University to access careers advice and information throughout their time at Sussex. We liaise with Schools to provide drop-ins, advice and placements support. We can also help you to recruit student workers via our free vacancy advertising.

Graduate destinations (DLHE and Graduate Outcomes)

We used to survey our graduates every year, six months after graduation, as part of the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey. The outcomes contribute to national league tables. DLHE has been replaced by Graduate Outcomes now, and takes place 15 months after graduation. Our annual reports show what our graduates do by department or school of study.Contact David Gillman for more details.
