Westmere Careers Series

Westmere plus logo

The Westmere Careers Series is a series of events especially for Postgraduate Researchers. Events in the series are designed to help you explore your career options and prepare for a career outside of academia. Some sessions are held in the PGR Hub at Westmere House (G15 on the campus map.) whilst others take place across campus.

Events often feature employer guests or external speakers and focus on a range of areas including non-academic career options, articulating your PhD skills to non-academic employers and effective preparation for job applications and interviews outside of academia.

Upcoming workshops

All upcoming workshops as part of Westmere Careers Series are on the Events for Postgraduates page.
