Postgraduate Open Evening

Jobs and Volunteering


We understand that most of our students will need part-time employment while they are studying their degree. Our Careers and Employability team are friendly and dedicated to finding you term-time jobs, summer employment, volunteering opportunities, placements and helping you to reach your dream career. They can help you research postgraduate study after you graduate, develop your skills as a freelancer or help you start a business. 96.5% of our graduates were in employment or further study within six months of graduation (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education 2018).



The Careers and Employability team are available weekdays, with a Careers Centre at Chichester and a Careers Desk at Bognor for both drop in or bookable appointments. They also run course specific employer events, with employers in your subject area coming to the university to talk about what they look for and current opportunities.

Having work experience will add a range of valuable skills and experience to your CV and help you stand out from the crowd. The team are able to support you in accessing course specific work placements to support your degree and build you to be a strong candidate for life after graduation. Our online careers and jobs board is regularly updated with opportunities and contacts to support you in finding work and placements. 

To find out more, take a look at our Careers and Employability pages.



Volunteering at Chichester couldn't be simpler. The Careers and Employability Team can help you to find a suitable volunteering role. We have links with a large range of charities and voluntary organisations in the local area. There are also a growing range of opportunities within the Students' Union (SU). The SU is run for students, by students offering different volunteering schemes such as Freshers' Crew to help new students move into university accommodation, committee roles to run sports clubs/societies and officer roles representing the student body on a wider scale. 



The SU support national campaigns such as Black History Month, Mental Health & Wellbeing and This Girl Can to raise awareness, give students the opportunity to join in and host events within the campaigns. They also run an abundance of fundraising events throughout the year, including RAG Race that has over 2000 students in attendance, to raise money for the charities students have nominated and voted for. And if that wasn't enough - our staff and students even partake in a monthly 2 minute beach clean of Bognor Regis beach to maintain our beautiful seaside town for everyone to enjoy!

Visit the Students' Union website for more information of how you could get involved.
