Employers: Work with us

Our students are on a journey and we engage employers every step of the way.

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak the Careers & Employability Team have moved online.The Employer Connections Team are working remotely to ensure our students and employers remain connected using digital solutions.During this time, we are still keen to hear from employers who want to engage with and recruit our talented students.Here are some of the ways we can support you;

Host a virtual event

We are currently co-ordinating a virtual programme of remote events to help employers remain visible amongst our students over the coming months and to showcase roles still available for 2020.This will include a series of live webinars, social media takeovers, virtual office tours, practice video and telephone interviews, live case studies, live Q&A chats and many other creative initiatives to engage future talent during these challenging times.Any existing content you already have available or scheduled can be included in this as well as tailored and bespoke activities which we can plan together.To get involved and to find out more, contact Grace Berry.


Support for SMEs

We are currently sourcing opportunities from SMEs as part of the 2019/20 Santander Internship Programme and are looking for a diverse range of organisations to provide 8-week full time internships for final year students and recent graduates to complete at the end of their studies. These projects must be paid at the rate of £9 per hour which equates to £2520 in total for the 8 weeks, however through the Santander Programme we will contribute £1260 towards this cost. Current final year students will be available to start full time placements from 1st June.

Many SMEs use this programme as an opportunity to bring some fresh new skills and innovative thinking into their business without any long-term commitment however many do go on to offer permanent roles to their interns having been impressed with the level of talent.This could be an ideal time to recruit a student to help you develop your digital presence as we all move online.If you would like to learn more about the Santander SME Internship Programme and how your business could benefit, please contact Paul Cullinan.

We are currently finalising the details for our autumn programme of activity including our ‘Business, Finance & Law’ and ‘Science, Engineering & Tech’ Fairs.To register your interest, please contact Jane Marsh and we will send you further details as soon as they become available.
