Going Digital – Coronavirus Update

We take the wellbeing of our staff, students and local communities very seriously and, as such, following the most recent advice from the government, we have decided to suspend all face to face contact until further notice. Please don’t worry! We’re working on ensuring that all of the support you need is still accessible online.

Please note that for the time being we are available via email only within office hours – Monday to Friday, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm – at careers@westminster.ac.uk; and you can also connect with us on Twitter and Facebook.

Careers support available at your fingertips

Appointments

If you require any 1-to-1 careers support, please book a telephone or Skype appointment through Engage. Both of our 20-minute and 45-minute consultations are available remotely and the same booking rules apply – bookings for 20-minute consultations open at 12 noon the day before, and for 45-minute ones, you can book for up to two weeks in advance.

Appointments with our Placement Teams are also available remotely – use the online booking system. For any questions or issues, please get in touch with the relevant Placements Team via email.

Ask a Question 

For one-off careers questions you can submit your questions via the Ask a Question function on Engage.

Online Resources

Please also be reminded that there are plenty of resources available online to support you in your career journey. For example, if you feel like now is a good time to update your CV and Cover letter, you can use all of the relevant resources provided on this page.

Some employers are arranging video interviews and online assessment centres to job candidates as an alternative to face-to-face selection. So why not prepare by using our online Interview Simulator or practising some psychometrics.

Westminster Employability Award

With face-to-face events being cancelled across the university, we understand that many of you are particularly concerned about completing your core activities-specifically the ‘Attend 3 Careers and Employability Events On Campus’ activity. We are reviewing ways in which we can offer online materials in place of these events, to ensure all students have a fair chance of completing the WEA.

For the moment, we will be answering queries via email only and you can send any questions to EmployabilityAward@westminster.ac.uk. We will make all efforts to get back to you as quickly as possible, but ask you all please kindly be patient with us at this time.

Additional support

For anything else, please always refer to the Student Hub for the latest information and advice.

Your Feedback Matters

Would you like to tell us how we are doing with delivering our careers services online? Please let us know on here.

As previously mentioned, a new Student Centre is opening in Marylebone campus, allowing you to access all essential student support services in one place. We do not know when we will be available in person at our new location, but we look forward to seeing you there once we are back! Until then, we are available via email within office hours – Monday to Friday, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm – at careers@westminster.ac.uk ; and you can also connect with us on Twitter and Facebook.

 

Stay safe and take good care,

Your Careers Team
