Mentoring The Employability Mentoring Scheme is a great way to increase the employability of our graduates, contribute to the local economy, raise the profile of your company, and potentially nurture your future employees. The scheme is designed to match mentors who have real life experience with our students, preparing students for the transition from education to the workplace.
Internships We are pleased to announce the continuation of our highly successful Graduate Internship Scheme. The scheme allows us to offer businesses a £1,000 bursary to recruit one of our talented graduates for a minimum three-month period. If you have never recruited a graduate, this is an ideal scheme to explore the potential, with minimal risk for you, as an employer.
Placements Many of our students are keen to do all that they can to enhance their prospects when they leave university. Some courses have a capacity to build in work placements into a programme of study, whereas some students may choose to do a summer placement with an organisation. Placements can last from as little as one month up to whole year.
If you are looking to fill a graduate-level job, or have part-time vacancies or placements suitable for undergraduate students, we can help you throughout the recruitment process. We offer a free vacancy handling service, which allows you to target our students with your opportunities and ensures you have the best chance of securing the right talent for your company.
Many of our students are keen to develop new skills to improve their prospects when they graduate from university. For some the offer of a summer placement is a great way to fit this around their studies, as well as help determine their future career choices. With a range of funding schemes available, recruiting a student or graduate intern can help support them, as well as providing you with the opportunity to explore the value of injecting their fresh ideas into your business
You can raise the profile of your organisation and the opportunities that you may have among our students and graduates by providing us with an employer profile for our dedicated careers website. This is a great way to raise awareness of your brand, whilst also helping us to ensure our students have a clear and accurate understanding of the labour market.
