What can we support on?
Here at the Student Advice Centre, we offer basic support with an employment issue. Any issues regarding employment law would have to be referred out to another service such as ACAS (The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service)
However, we can advise on employment terms and conditions, issues with salaries and wages, and the implications of breaking an employment contract. Our team also advises on issues regarding unpaid wages, unfair treatment in the workplace, and holiday allowances. It is important to note that our staff are not legally trained and therefore we cannot provide legal advice. If you require legal advice, please instruct legal representation.
Support with employability and help developing skills and experience is provided by our colleagues in the NUSU Employability team. The University Careers Service can also provide support for those seeking employment. They offer CV reviews, guidance towards job hunting for full and part-time work, and long term career strategy advice. For more information please visit the University Careers Service.
The COVID-19 outbreak is generating lots of concerns, questions, and issues for many people. We're receiving a lot of queries related to the virus outbreak and we hope to be able to help you navigate these as best we can. We have created a Covid-19 FAQ page.
