Careers advice for staff

As a member of Edge Hill staff, you are able to have one-to-one confidential careers guidance appointments with our Careers Advisers. At the current time, we are unable to prioritize staff members as we are very busy supporting our students and recent graduates. We expect to be able to offer this service again shortly.
