The IADT Careers Centre is here to help and support students and graduates in their career planning and research. As Careers Officer I am always happy to meet with students individually or in class groups.

You can make an appointment to discuss your career plans, to have a vocational assessment done, or to look for specific information relating to your discipline or area of interest.

The Employability Programme is offered to students over the course of their degree programme by arrangement (see link to details). Seminars/workshops on careers-related topics can be integrated into current modules as required by lecturers or programme coordinators.

 NOTE:   The Careers Centre remains open during most of the summer months, closing for holidays for three weeks from late July.

We provide a service to employers to help them recruit the students and recent graduates they require for their companies.

I’m available to discuss with employers how best to connect you with students and graduates from our various courses, whether for fulltime positions, summer internships or freelance or project work.

You are welcome to email me directly notices and job specifications for current vacancies which I will pass on to the appropriate students/graduates.

There is a Careers Information Hub outside the Careers Office where you can browse careers information in both hardcopy and online formats.

As a finalist or recent graduate you can be included on your class mailing list in the Graduate Database by notifying the Careers Officer of your current personal email address.
