Career Services

As a UCC student you have access to information, support and guidance from the team of Careers Advisors throughout your time at UCC.



Who works there?

There is a large team of staff with different roles within the Careers Service, including career advisors and work placement managers.

There are two advisors who work specifically with students registered with the Disability Support Service and they are:

They meet students for one-to-one careers appointments where they support students with queries related to:

Both Shay and Brenda are also Careers Advisors in the Careers Service and can be accessed for an appointment through either office.
