Welcome to the Humanities Careers and Employability intranet pages! 

Wondering what Employability is and how it relates to you and your degree? HEFCE have described it as 'a set of achievements, understandings and personal attributes that make individuals more likely to gain employment and to be successful in their chosen occupations'.

We're here to help you to make sense of the wide variety of resources and opportunities open to you. Take a look around our site here, or get in touch at humanities-employability@exeter.ac.uk!

Mair George, Humanities Employability Officer, supports work placements by building links with employers and external organisations. Mair also organises Employer and Alumni events and Professional Development sessions especially for Humanities students. 

Hayley Johns, Employability and Alumni Assistant for the College, assists with co-ordinating events and provides administrative support.

If you need to contact the Humanities Careers Team, please email humanities-employability@exeter.ac.uk, or you can visit us in the East Wing Admin Office, Queen's Building.
