Danielle Warr QCG MSc BSc
In conjunction with the wider Careers Service across the UWTSD campuses, I offer Career related information, advice and guidance to students based at Birmingham Campus, in both Quay Place and Sparkhill Learning Centres. Through one-to-one interactions and group sessions embedded into the wider academic curriculum, I work with students on topics such as self-awareness, goal setting, and career decision making. In addition, I provide practical opportunity support, in the form of personal statements, application forms, CVs and job searching advice.
Before retraining as a Career Adviser in 2016 my work centred around customer service and promotional work particularly within the charity retail sector, working with a range of well-known organisations including British Heart Foundation, PDSA, and Scope. I very much enjoyed recruiting, mentoring, and helping volunteers develop new skills and experiences. Since 2017 I have had the opportunity to work within Higher Education through the University of Gloucestershire as a part-time lecturer in Marketing focusing on research projects and experiential learning, and with Gloucestershire College within their Student Recruitment and Advice and Guidance teams.
I am a full member of AGCAS (Association of Graduate Career Advisers)
I am currently studying for my MA in Career Development. My research project aims to assess the role of technology in the career advice and guidance process. My particular focus is on the value that students place in the introduction of virtual interactions and digital resources augmenting traditional forms of practice.
