Advice and Guidance for Employers

The Careers team can guide and support you with all aspects of student and graduate recruitment and engagement. We act as a central point of contact to access the specialist facilities at the University and the specialist knowledge and abilities of our academics and students.

If you are unsure about any aspect of employing a student or graduate, please get in touch and we can help you explore further. We also offer a comprehensive Employer Recruitment Toolkit below, that will guide you through the recruitment process from start to finish.

Further general information and advice is available via the Government website.

Why not recruit an International Student?

Did you know it’s never been easier to recruit an international student?

On July 1st 2021 the Government introduced the Graduate Route visa to enable graduates to stay in the UK for at least 2 years following their graduation.

Unlike existing visas which require the employer to do the application, this route requires the graduate to apply and pay the consequent fees. Click here for more information: employing international students

And research has shown that employers with a diverse workforce benefit from:

  • higher profits
  • Increased innovation and creativity
  • enhanced brand appeal

So why not grow your exports by harnessing international graduates’ home country knowledge, and languages such as Mandarin and Arabic?

See the Guide for Employers  for all the information.
