Role

I work within the Careers and Employability team, which enhances the employability of all Sussex undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers.

I design and deliver workshops, provide individual careers guidance, and liaise with the Schools of Business, Management and Finance, and History, Art History and Philosophy, to support their employability programmes.

I am co-ordinator for the careers element of the First-Generation Scholars Scheme, providing specialist support to Sussex undergraduates who are the first in their family to go to university, or who come from a financially modest background. 

I manage the Learning to Lead initiative, which recruits Sussex students to undergo a series of training events to prepare them for positions of leadership.
