Resources and support to develop your employability skills

On this page

Recruiters want to know about your skills, what you can do, how well you can do it, and where and when you developed these skills. Research shows that employers rate previous work experience as one of the most valued attributes a graduate can bring to a role.

You can demonstrate your skills by gaining work or voluntary experience. This lets you turn knowledge you’re gaining into practice, builds understanding of the sector you want to work in (commercial awareness), and helps you develop on-the-job skills.

Our guides and other resources will help you build upon your existing skills to boost your chances of finding a career that suits you.
