Covid 19 resources

Next Step Support is an open collaboration between a number of organisations that provide support and services to students.

www.NextStepSupport.org is a free, open resource.

Searching for jobs, internships and work experience

We understand that now is an unsettling time, so we’ve been speaking to employers to find out how Covid-19 is impacting recruitment. 

The good news is employers are still recruiting, many are launching recruitment campaigns for part time jobs to support the response to Covid-19. These roles provide an excellent opportunity to enhance your skill set whilst supporting a national cause.  

In addition, employers are still advertising graduate level roles with many recruitment processes now being moved online. 

Help applying

For support with applying for a role you should firstly access the ‘Write a winning application form’ e-Lesson or contact the Careers Service to review your CV or application.
