Linking with Students and Graduates

PROMOTIONAL PITCH -allows you to come onto campus for a day to raise the profile of your organisation within the student population. We will provide you with a table in our main atrium on Talbot Campus. This holds our restaurants and student shops so is a busy part of the University campus. Here you can promote your organisation by handing out company literature and meet with students in an informal way. We encourage organisations to bring any merchandise that might catch the students attention whilst walking past. New timetabling now allows an organisation to have the pitch all day (9am – 5pm). If you do not intend to spend the whole day with use we do ask for you to specify this whilst booking so we know when to come and greet you on campus. You can make a promotional pitch booking online by visiting our Promotional Pitch Booking Form

WORKSHOP ON CAMPUS- This allows employers to speak to students in more detail about opportunities and the company. Once you have booked you will be informed of the room you have been allocated along with a campus map to make your time on campus as efficient as possible. We advise that if you would like to hold a workshop then you book it at least 3 weeks in advance to allow sufficient time for students to hear about the opportunities and prepare to attend. To book a workshop please visit our Workshop Booking Form

GRADUATE AND PLACEMENTS FAIR – This is an annual event at Bournemouth University held in the Autumn Term. It allows employers to come on campus and advertise any graduate or placement opportunities they may have. Further information about this year's GAP Fair can be found here.

MYCAREERHUB – Online placing service. The site is free to use and will allow you to upload any type of student opportunity you may have. In the past these have ranged from part time jobs, volunteering, placements and graduate roles. Please be aware that due to different contacts within organisations your company may have already registered. In this case you will need to request to be added as a contact and you will be assigned log ins. If you are a new organisation to the system you can register and upload your job description here.

Please be aware of term dates when advertising opportunities for BU students. You may want to consider extending deadlines in order to accommodate students who may be on holiday at the time of placing your vacancy. More details regarding term dates can be found here.
