Recruit our students

We work to equip our students with the specialist, professional and personal skills they need in employment.

We can help you find the right person for your business needs, from student work placements to graduate internships, or filling full-time, part-time and seasonal vacancies.

The Careers and Employability team provides advice and guidance to students as they look for employment opportunities, contacts in the business world and ways to develop further.

We do this by building relationships with local, national and international organisations like yourselves, and learning about your requirements and the aptitudes you are looking for.

We can help you find the right person, from student work placements to graduate roles, internships, full-time, part-time and seasonal vacancies. Or perhaps you have a short-term project to fulfil.

We have an online jobs board where you can advertise your roles for free to our students. You can add as many jobs as you like.
