Career Development and Employability Services (CDES)

Thinking about life after University? To help with this, the Faculty of Science and Career Development and Employability Services (CDES) can provide information and advice on the opportunities available to you.

How CDES can help

It’s important to think about life after study early on in your degree. You don’t need to know exactly what job you want, but it’s good to start thinking about career development within the industries you might like to work in.

Career Development and Employability Services (CDES) can help you find your direction and develop your skills and employability. We’ll help you identify opportunities, network with employers and become work ready. You’ll be able to use our online career management system, MyCDES, which features a job board, resources and bookings for workshops, events, and appointments with Career Development Consultants. These services are available while you’re at University and for up to three years after you graduate.
