Covid 19 resources
Next Step Support is an open collaboration between a number of organisations that provide support and services to students.
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.
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.
If you have any questions on any of our services above or accessing support, use the ‘Ask a question’ service on MetHub and one of our team will get straight back to you.
