The Medical Sciences Division have announced the next set of one-to-one careers sessions arranged for the JR and ORC sites, run by the Careers Service specifically for DPhil students and researchers. This page will be updated as we are advised of new sessions.
The below appointments at the JR and ORC are bookable by calling the Careers Service reception on 01865 274646. These appointments are in addition to those offered throughout the year at The Careers Service office based at 56 Banbury Road every week and can be booked using your CareerConnect account (accessed via www.careers.ox.ac.uk).
These sessions will help you identify some achievable next steps and to understand how the Careers Service can support you as you proceed. These include hands-on programmes to develop your core employability skills and workshops to help you hone your written application skills and interview techniques.
Each appointment will last for 30 minutes. Appointments will need to be pre-booked through the Careers Service on 01865 274646. You will just need to confirm the date and location of the session when you call. For overseas staff, please feel free to contact the Careers Service and ask to arrange a skype or phone appointment.

Careers Service Scope
Please be aware that the current scope of the Careers Service is to offer appointments to research staff and DPhil students. However, they do provide a host of resources for staff members who do not fall within these categories.
In addition to the one-to-one sessions provided by the Careers Service, you may also wish to consider joining a mentoring scheme which can provide you with an opportunity to discuss your career options or take advantage of the University Coaching Scheme. There are many different mentoring schemes on offer, each taylored slightly differently and aimed at different staff groups, so individuals can choose the right one for them. We would also encourage you to make use of your Personal Development Review to discuss your development, aspirations and opportunities. Also, look out for posters and e-mails about the various different courses and events on offer which could provide you with the opportunity to explore your career pathways and options.
