We present details of the graduate development and careers support sessions provided for students on our Mathematics based programmes. The schedule described below was introduced four years ago and was set up in order to better prepare our students for placement opportunities as well as for future careers. Prior to the scheme, feedback from potential employers indicated that our students lacked confidence and were not selling themselves. In particular, students needed coaching on how to get a job and to prove to potential employers that they had the skills to get a job. The introduction of the careers team-led sessions coincided with a new careers service being offered at UWE Bristol. UWE Bristol's Careers and Enterprise Team won the prestigious National Undergraduate Employability Award 2014 for Best University Careers/Employability Service.
