Alumni Career Support

Supporting Our Alumni

Alumni Career Development

As part of our lifelong learning commitment to our alumni we offer continued career development and professional enrichment support.

We want to be a partner in your lifelong learning by helping you to develop throughout your career. In partnership with the Employability and Professional Enrichment Hub, there is a range of support available to you as well as opportunities for you to engage and support the career development of fellow alumni as well as current students. 


Career Development

The Employability and Professional Enrichment Hub offers continued access to a range of online career resources including course specific career information, jobs boards and support relating to CVs, cover letters and interview preparation can be found on Campus Moodle:


Career Consultants can offer advice and guidance in relation to career planning, CVs, cover letters, applications, interview techniques, job searches and skills. Initial consultations, in person or via Skype or via telephone, are available for all alumni, after which they will determine the most suitable service to best support you. Extended appointments are also available for mock interviews. Contact employability@rgu.ac.uk to discuss this further or book an appointment directly via My Career:
