Leadership & Employability

What you achieve academically and experience as a person whilst at Durham will say a lot about you in the future. 

The opportunities Team Durham can provide by taking part in sport and/or becoming involved in the administration of clubs and committees, officiating and volunteering, will help you develop an enviable set of professional techniques enabling you to be more successful in the graduate job market and equip you with adaptable and marketable workplace skills.

Your experiences will help you build up skills in team-working, problem-solving, communication, organisation, time-management, negotiation and leadership. These are all qualities highly valued by regional, national and international employers who know that a degree, combined with a unique Durham life experience, is just what they need from the graduates that they recruit.
