For many years now, there have been calls for policymakers to appreciate the needs of ethnic minority groups in an employment context. Reportedly, there also is goodwill for change to this end by the employers. However, the lack of wider opportunities for
ethnic minority students is a concern to this day. Within the ethnic minorities, there are subsets that have varying characteristics and therefore varying needs and challenges with regards to employment. This research aims to understand the employment challenges of one subset of the ethnic minority groups: Muslim female students. Qualitative data gathered for this research showed that the challenges faced by the female Muslim students fall into two categories: personal and family challenges, and job sector
challenges. Based on the findings, suggestions for addressing some of these challenge are also highlighted.
