About Coleg Cambria's Job Shop

Cambria Job Shop is available on all Cambria sites and is a service to support the employability skills of all students at Cambria. This “employability service” is vital in our students progressing into careers after studying at Cambria.

Job Shop supports drop-in sessions and students can book in 1-1 appointments for advice on CVs/cover letters, job search, apprenticeships, application forms, and interview tips. Workshops are also available for group sessions.

Job Shop hosts multiple careers events each academic year, inviting local and regional employers to all Cambria sites. Students can attend and meet potential future employers, often leading to many of them being successful in gaining work experience and apprenticeships.

Through the Job Shop employers advertise job vacancies both full and part-time, apprenticeships and voluntary work. Therefore Job Shop is continually promoting progression opportunities; not only for our students but the local community and beyond.

There are useful links on the Careers Wales website where you can find more advice and guidance on searching for jobs, preparing to make job applications, etc: careerswales.gov.wales.

This added-value service commenced in April 2019 and continues to be an essential part of student support here at Cambria. Due to the Welsh Government focus on employability skills for all; Job Shop meets the expectation nationally of this agenda.

It’s never too early to prepare for your future career! So check out our Job Shop portal on the website, should you have any enquiries please email jobshop@cambria.ac.uk.
