Degree students in Manchester receive top career advice from Hays at Manchester City

Thirteen 1st year students from the Manchester City Community Football Coaching BSc degree course recently received some top career advice as part of a joint initiative by recruiting experts Hays and Manchester City.

Hays is the Official Recruitment Partner of Manchester City and took the opportunity to run an employability session at the City Football Academy, the club’s elite training and youth development centre.  

The first-year students were able to take part in an employability session prepared by Jenny Lampkin from Hays Education who demonstrated how pupils can write their first CV and identify what skills they will need to consider developing for future employment. The employability session is one of many Hays has ran with students and pupils in the North West over the past few years, alongside Manchester City.

“The day was a great opportunity to provide pupils with practical advice such as CV writing, skills development and interview tips”, said Jenny Lampkin, Senior Business Manager at Hays Education in the North West.

“Students at the beginning of their degree courses are at a key point in their development and it’s important they are armed with practical employment skills that they can use whilst studying and after graduating.”

Mike Green, Head of City in the Community, commented: “We are really pleased to again have hosted a series of employability sessions delivered by Hays at the City Football Academy. The sessions are a great opportunity for us to equip students from our educational courses with the right skills to help them in their future careers and exemplifies the unique activations we have been delivering with Hays.”
