Our story


The Careers Group story



For more than a century, at The Careers Group, University of London we've been using our expertise and specialist knowledge to perfectly match talented graduates with innovative businesses, and help develop employees and employers throughout their professional careers.

We enable organisations to educate and develop their staff to achieve and maintain career success.

The Careers Group was founded in 1909 as the University of London Appointments Board. Three years later, more than 300 students were registered and the Board had sent out 1,340 vacancies.

More than a century later, The Careers Group has developed a wide range of employment services for students, graduates, institutions and businesses alike.

Each year, we help tens of thousands of students and graduates - from finding the perfect internship or permanent position to early career development advice. Students, graduates and employers access our services on our website and in careers centres across 17 institutions.

We provide companies with bespoke career development and skills training for their staff - from senior management to junior trainees.

Our services also include products for higher and further education institutions - from comprehensive DLHE collection and specialised event management to setting up a careers service and establishing the leading careers service management system.
