This Statement outlines the standard of service you can expect as a student, graduate, staff client or recruiter, engaging with The Careers Group, University of London. Also available as a PDF.
The Careers Group is a network of careers services operating throughout the University of London and beyond. We enable your institutions to educate and develop you to achieve and maintain career success.
We provide careers education, information, advice and guidance including applications/interview support. We engage individuals in career management activities through which they become equipped with the skills and insights to discover their career options and make appropriate choices to develop their careers.
Each member service applies this process through different activities, based on college/client group need. We offer a database of work experience and job opportunities including part-time work, an internship or work-placement, or a permanent graduate role.
We also help recruiters to gain direct access to individuals seeking opportunities to develop their careers.
We are committed to providing impartial client-focussed information, advice and guidance. We engage in continuous professional development to maintain service excellence and we comply with relevant professional standards including Matrix and IAG. See the full list of standards.
Current students and staff at all colleges which subscribe to The Careers Group are eligible to access all services provided by their College Careers team. See our complete list of subscribing colleges. Most services are free.
Recent graduates of subscribing colleges are invited to join GradClub for either a small fee or for free depending on the college.
GradClub offers free or heavily discounted use of our services for up to two years after leaving university.
Graduates of any other institution are able to use C2 (our fee paying service for graduates out of Higher Education for longer than 2 years).
