Supporting equality and diversity


The Careers Service is here to support you with your career planning and is fully committed to ensuring that you are all treated equally.

Come and talk to us

If you feel you need support with career planning, for whatever reason, come and speak to a careers adviser, who will offer impartial, confidential advice. You can make an appointment on Career Connect via MUSE, or contact us on 0114 222 0910.

We can see you in the Careers Service or communicate with you via email, telephone, SKYPE or FaceTime.

You can talk to us if you:

  • are worried that you will face discrimination when applying for a job or course
  • suspect you've already suffered discrimination when seeking employment or admission to a course
  • are unsure of your options due to a previous criminal conviction or police caution

Any information that you provide will be treated in the strictest confidence.
