Careers

The PSA has been working with the University's Careers Service to develop opportunities for students to increase their understanding of the work of public service and the roles of the future generation of public servants.

Internships

Partnership work with the Carrers Office in UoB and Workforce Planning Officers  at Birmingham City Council has led to a strong programme of internships for UoB undergarduates, including the competitive Future Leaders programme that spans local government, fire and health; and the current development of UoB's accredited 'community researcher' programme for young people in partnership with IRIS and BCC.

 

Public Service Careers

The PSA has jointly funded and organised speed networking events for students to learn about the range of public service roles in the public, private and voluntary sectors, with city council colleagues and University alumni amongst those advising students on career routes and opportunities.
