All Leeds Trinity University degrees offer a blend of employability skills, professional work placements, extra-curricular activities and one-to-one support.

We call this our employability formula – a special blend of support and guidance that gives our graduates a head start to getting a job.

Our employability statistic speaks for itself with 97% of our graduates are in employment or further study 15 months after graduating (Graduate Outcomes, Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) published 2022)​.​​

Your career starts here

From day one, the Careers and Employability team offers a variety of services to help you become as employable as possible by the time you graduate.

We'll guide you through the professional work placements you'll complete as part of your degree, help you plan your career, work with you on your job search and advise you on future study options.

Your Career Passport

As well as ensuring that you get industry experience through our professional work placements, we want to ensure that every student knows the skills and behaviours that employers are looking for and, more importantly, how they can be applied across a huge range of career opportunities.

Whether you start university with a clear idea of your career path, or you discover your next steps during your degree, our Career Passport is designed to help you record and showcase the employability skills you develop – providing you with a bank of evidence to use for job applications and interviews.

Through our Career Passport, you will:

  • develop a clear picture of the skills and behaviours employers are looking for
  • understand how you develop these skills and behaviours through the way they are embedded in your course and each of your modules
  • have the opportunity to apply your knowledge and experience through active learning, assessments, professional work placements, and work-based projects
  • gather evidence throughout your studies to show how you are developing your employability skills
  • become confident in your ability to apply your skills and experience to a broad range of job opportunities

Earn while you learn

If you're looking for a part-time role to fit around your studies, a summer job, or a graduate position, we can help.

Student and graduate vacancies are advertised through our online Careers and Employability system.

You can also get help with your CV and application forms at our Careers and Employability drop-in sessions or by booking an appointment with a careers advisor.

The Graduate Employment Team is available to assist you for up to three years after you graduate, with support including:

  • one-to-one appointments on CVs, cover letters, personal statements and interview preparation
  • support with building all aspects of your professional profile
  • support with searching for a job
