If you are in your final year of study, GradForce can help fast track your graduate career with their exclusive GetHired! employability programme and graduate jobs.

Many new graduates are unaware what to expect or what is required of them as they move on from university. Being a graduate requires a graduate mentality, and GradForce will ensure you leave with just that. We have created the bespoke, FREE Get Hired! training programme to help maximise your employability potential, develop your confidence to think and act like a professional by understanding yourself and what an employer looks for in an employee, and provide access to graduate jobs.

Register for the Get Hired! Programme

Applications are now open to register for the GradForce: Get Hired! Programme. If you have any questions, please email gradforce@canterbury.ac.uk.

We are thrilled with the success of GradForce so far and have secured exclusive graduate roles for our students with local employers. The feedback from our employers has been excellent; confirming just how work-ready our graduates are.

The Get Hired! Programme

Consisting of eight core topics that run alongside your usual lectures, learn how to recognise your strengths, build upon them, enable a growth mindset to face challenges positively, set accurate expectations, and fully prepare for the graduate recruitment cycle.

The programme will begin with a launch event in November, followed by a suite of regular workshops taking place from February until March the following year. From April onwards, we will start matching your career goals with suitable graduate-level opportunities in Kent and help you get hired!

In order to complete the programme, you must attend all of the core sessions. Successful completion of the programme will not only result in confidence and preparation when entering the graduate job market, but also a signed certificate you can add to your LinkedIn profile and to your CV. The programme will conclude in a celebratory awards ceremony, where you will receive your certificate and a gift voucher as a reward for your commitment, dedication, and in recognition of becoming a GradForce graduate.


The GradForce: Get Hired! Programme is open to all final year undergraduate students at Canterbury Christ Church University.

We also have a particular focus on underrepresented groups within the University to level the playing field and ensure that all students leave with equal opportunity to transition into graduate-level employment. We therefore particularly welcome applications from final year undergraduates from these underrepresented groups, including:

  • Students from black heritage
  • Students with visible or non-visible disabilities, including neurodiversity
  • Students from low socioeconomic backgrounds
  • Students from low participation areas
  • Students who are care leavers
