Our services

The Careers & Enterprise Centre is currently offering an online service. Appointments with staff are available and are being offered through video or audio call via Microsoft Teams. These can be booked as normal via the Student Services Portal. Our Guide to using Microsoft Teams for appointments contains information you might find helpful. If you have any queries about this please contact careers@durham.ac.uk.

Navigating our information and resources

Current students and staff have access to a wide variety of online information and resources facilitated by Careers & Enterprise. Direct links to our most popular resources can be found in the Quick Links section below.

The website you are currently visiting contains an overview of the various services we offer. As a current student or staff member, you also have access to more in-depth information and resources. We are currently reviewing our student- and staff-facing information in order to make it easier for you to find the information you are looking for.

If you are a current student or staff member you can access additional information and resources on our internal webpages, which you might recognise as our old website. This includes information about services and initiatives that students can benefit from during their time at Durham.

If you are a member of staff you can also access our new Staff Intranet. This hosts information about how Careers & Enterprise can support colleagues across the university via various different elements of our service.

If you can't find the information you need, please feel free to email us at careers@durham.ac.uk. Current students can also contact us using the 'Ask a Careers Question' functionality on the Student Services Portal. Please contact us via these methods rather than via telephone.
