Employment & Internships

We offer a range of ways to employ or develop students and graduates. Read below for information on vacancy advertising, or on our various Internship Funding Schemes that support you while you increase the employability of a recent graduate.

This section of the website is devoted to live Q&A sessions with our own advisers or external employers. We will promote the Live Q&A’s in advance and you can also access session archives below.

Vacancy advertising

You can use the Careers & employability service to advertise:

  • Part time roles
  • Placement positions - either summer or yearlong roles
  • Graduate positions - including immediate start vacancies for recent graduates and vacancies aimed at final year students who will graduate in the summer
