Careers and business support

As a graduate, we know it can be difficult to navigate the working world once you leave university. To help you on your journey, you have access to careers support from the Management School and University for three years after graduation. There is also on-going support available for your business and start-up needs.

Careers support

As well as access to the University's Careers Service as a graduate for three years, you also have access to the Management School's Careers Advisers, who have dedicated appointments for Management School graduates. You will also continue to receive relevant employability updates in Catalyst online and through our email updates.

We can support you for up to three years after you graduate, so please get in touch with us if you need help with your career planning.

You can use your Career Connect account as a graduate to book a 30 minute appointment with a Careers Adviser or, if you find it difficult to visit us, send an email enquiry. Book an appointment and search opportunities by accessing your Career Connect account.

Entrepreneurship and Business support

Through the University’s dedicated Entrepreneurship team, you can access a range of programmes and activities to help you solve real business challenges including Sandpit sessions and a Pre-accelerator programme.

Our friends at Business Sheffield can help with accessing Advisors to talk through business ideas, workshops and training sessions, networking and events and other skills to help you progress with your business.

Start-up Visa

Start-up Visa programme is one of the opportunities that has supported recent graduates from the international student community of the University. We recognise the value this programme has given in allowing overseas graduates to remain in the UK for two years and develop a business idea.
