Policies

LSE Careers is a member of the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS) and abides by the AGCAS code of practice [pdf].

LSE Careers also abides by LSE's policies and procedures.

Your study and your career

Do not jeopardise your academic studies by spending too much time on job applications. If you attempt too many applications, they are likely to be poorly researched and ineffective. A handful of well-researched, carefully-written applications are much more likely to succeed.  

Make an appointment to speak with an adviser to discuss this or attend one of our careers seminars for guidance on graduate recruitment in your chosen field.

Internships

LSE Careers supports the advice on Internships (pdf) issued by the UCU and NUS. 

LSE Careers will only advertise internship opportunities that comply with national minimum wage legislation.  When advertising any unpaid internship opportunities we ensure that they are:

  • With a charity, voluntary organisation, associated fund raising body or statutory body, or
  • Voluntary and pass the  'worker test' as described in the NUS and UCU advice on internships

It is ultimately the advertising organisation's responsibility to ensure any internship and voluntary opportunities they provide comply with national minimum wage legislation.  If you require advice or guidance with regard to internships please contact us.

Jobs on CareerHub

LSE Careers reviews all opportunities advertised on LSE CareerHub and anyone who advertises on LSE CareerHub is subject to LSE Careers’ Terms of Use.

However, while LSE Careers carries out due diligence to ensure that the opportunities advertised are legitimate, there may be occasions when, despite LSE Careers’ best endeavours, a fraudulent opportunity may be advertised. The risk is greater where an opportunity is advertised by an individual, because unlike organisations, individual employers cannot be verified easily at Companies House or with The Charities Commission. As such, LSE Careers recommends that you take extra care when making applications to individuals and follow our advice on personal safety when job hunting and on working with individuals.

For the avoidance of doubt, LSE Careers cannot take any responsibility for the actions of employers who have advertised on LSE CareerHub and will not reimburse you for any losses that you may incur as a result. If you have any concerns or feedback please contact careers@lse.ac.uk.
