Careers information officers identify, analyse and assess the suitability and value of information relevant to a careers service or careers information unit.
They develop strategies for information planning, procurement, provision and management to meet current and anticipated needs, while considering budgeting constraints.
They provide a service to internal service users, such as current and former students and work colleagues, as well as to external users, such as other organisations and clients. They may also be responsible for other areas within the service, which are not necessarily information-related, for example:
- overseeing quality standards issues;
- coordinating, organising and administering general training;
- liaising with clients about employment and training opportunities;
