Discover your global career:

Did you know that we have a range of platforms available through the Careers Website for those pursuing international careers? Here’s a break down for you:

This contains all the information you’ll need to get you started on thinking about your global career. Working in another country is an ideal way to improve existing skills or learn new ones, making you more attractive to employers as well as being a beneficial addition to your CV.

GoinGlobal is an informative online resource, useful for UK students looking to find work or study abroad, or international students seeking work or study in their home country or elsewhere in the world. You can find information on working in different countries and key cities, alongside visa information and even articles on the culture and social life in those places!

Student Circus is a job portal for international students and the best part is you have free access to the Student Circus job portal!

Are you returning home to China after your studies? Careers have partnered with the prestigious Asia-based recruiter Lockin China.  They work with a large network of employers in China and actively look to match you with the right job after your studies.  Lockin China work with recruiters of Mandarin speakers, so may suit some UK students with relevant language skills.
