Careers Service Working together

The Careers Service's objectives are closely aligned to the University's excellence agenda. Its staff and activities make a significant contribution to the University's aim to be 'the place of useful learning where the best work and study'.

University's employability statement

The Strathclyde graduate will be recognised as deeply knowledgeable and adaptable, demonstrating the skills, attributes and confidence to thrive in an evolving, often challenging world. To meet the needs of all professions and career pathways, this will be achieved through the design of our curricula and the provision of opportunities for all students to engage in work related activities, entrepreneurial events and programmes and globally conscious initiatives throughout their studies.
