Careers and Employability Service


Help a Kent student progress in their career?

The Careers and Employability Service welcomes any offer from graduates of the University to contribute to the knowledge and experience of current students and graduates of the University of Kent. We are happy to facilitate this in a variety of ways and levels of engagement:

Talks on campus
We very much welcome Kent Alumni on to our campus to speak with our students about their industry and experiences. We can provide lecture halls and seminar rooms to give one-to-many presentations, skills session or workshops. The CES promote events via our newsletter, email bulletins, events calendars, Facebook, Twitter and blog.

Employability Festival
Employability Festival encompasses workshops, presentations, guest speakers, industry experts and careers fairs. The aim of Employability Festival is to encourage students to get involved in activities and skills development whilst at university and so, better preparing them for future employment.

Placement / Work Experience
At the Careers and Employability Service we would be very happy to speak to you regarding possible work experience opportunities, please email

Would you be interested in contributing to the Kent Employability Blog? This is managed by The Careers and Employability Service with occasional guest bloggers, covering topics like career planning, applying for jobs and marketing yourself. The posts tend to be around 500 words long, on any careers/employability topic, and they can link back to your website or Twitter feed if you wish. It is a great opportunity to promote your company, publicise a particular project or offer an insight into your industry.

Alumni & Development Office
The University of Kent Alumni department would be delighted to speak with you regarding alumni articles and would be keen to update your contact details.
