In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the University of Cambridge is significantly scaling back its operations, and the Careers Service is operating remotely. 

You can still speak with a careers adviser via Skype or phone – book an appointment by emailing or by messaging via Facebook. 

If you have a more general enquiry, please email via this address or a Facebook message, and a member of our Information Team will aim to be in touch with you within 24 hours during the working week.
