"At UoN, we pride ourselves in taking a super supportive approach to making sure our students are as well-equipped as possible to achieve their professional dreams.

"This includes developing and maintaining strong links with local employers, our 'changemaker hub' which helps students develop projects and voluntary initiatives that bolster their academic work and on-going support from our graduate school and alumni team."

There is a lot of uncertainty in the job market at the moment and it is a daunting time for students and graduates to be looking for a job.

But the number of jobs available are expected to grow even further, across all sectors, once graduate employers open up their roles for applications in September.

Debut Careers founder Michele Trusolino said: “Finding that first job as a student or a graduate has always been daunting.

"We know there are hundreds of graduate schemes, all with differing entry requirements, and employers and opportunities you have probably never even heard of.

"That’s why we created Debut and helping students remains at the very core of what we do.

“Given the recent uncertainty around Covid-19 and employers cancelling or changing their internships and graduate programmes, we felt more than ever the need to help.

"Our team has been working hard these past two months and we are proud to announce we have just released an upgrade to our architecture that allows Debut to have every single graduate job and internship in the UK on the platform.

“We are so excited to be able to build something that will truly serve the student and graduates in what is such a difficult time.”
