Welcome to the SGS Careers Services, a free, impartial and friendly team of careers practitioners who can help to guide you to your dream career or onto further studies. Located in quiet meeting rooms on all our main campuses, Filton, WISE and Stroud, we are available to meet with students throughout the college day, 9am to 4.30pm, via an easy to manage appointment system.
We offer talks on relevant topics such as university choice, apprenticeships applications, preparing for job interviews, using social media for networking or creating an effective CV. We also organise jobs fairs and large events, where students interact with some of the best employers in the region, find work experience and explore the world of work and how to enter it.
The service is Matrix Accredited. All staff are trained to graduate level in Careers coaching and hold membership of the Careers Development Institute, the UK's professional body for career development.
By using the latest artificial intelligence tools, labour market information, psychometric assessments to support our face to face work as well as continued support to alumni, students leave SGS with a solid foundation for their future career direction.
