Future prospects We organise a Careers Fair every Easter so that social work students can meet representatives from a range of employers from the statutory and independent sectors in the region and beyond. According to figures from our Careers Service, over 80% of our graduates are in employment within six months of completing their programmes, and over 90% of those are in graduate posts, mostly in local authorities. Whilst the most common occupation is that of social worker, our graduates are also employed as community workers, welfare rights advisers, housing officers, youth justice officers and drugs specialists. Some other graduates choose to embark upon post-graduate study in the service of enhancing their skills in therapeutic practice or research, and some have returned to the University of Hull to complete doctorates in social work.
