Student & Graduate Recruitment

If you are looking to recruit Graduates (for local, nation or international opportunities), and students for Placements (short or for a 'Sandwich year') or part-time roles, we offer recruitment events and free advertising via this site.

If you are interest in Placements we have a team of Placement Coordinators working within each faculty that can assist with your queries: This page of this website includes their contact details.

Online Jobs Board:
This portal was viewed more than 200,000 times by students and recent graduates in 2018.

To register and upload your job descriptions please use the menu to the left of this text (at the very top).
Please also read our Terms and Conditions before posting your vacancy.

Top Tips for promoting your vacancies can be seen here

The most important, please include a wage range (being transparent builds trust with this target audience), and secondly, students often wait for the deadline date to apply so better to have it set early and extend it than wonder why no one is applying.

Once uploaded we can further promote your vacancies on social media and via our Careers Advisers and Academics when appropriate.

Naturally we are happy to discuss how we can assist your specific recruitment needs.
