Coventry University aim to provide a supply of motivated students for placements and graduate jobs. To that end, the Careers Service run a number of programmes and initiatives that should reduce the cost of recruiting and help you find the right employee for your company.
The Employer Engagement Team work with a number of local, national and global employer partners, offering tailored recruitment services to help them reach our student talent pool. We run a range of employer events during the academic year, from large careers fairs designed to help raise employer profiles on campus, to tailored networking events designed to help employers reach their target audience. We also have a range of online tools and promotional channels at our disposal, including social media channels, plasma screens, target emails and our free vacancy portal Coventry Prospects.
Our recruitment services are bespoke and tailored to the needs of your company, whether you are a large enterprise, SME or start-up business. We have often supported employers in their recruitment campaigns by running interviews on campus, assisting with initial CV collation and by facilitating skills workshops and mock interview sessions.
Coventry University also has one of the most innovative and comprehensive employability programmes in the UK with more than 15,000 undergraduates students taking accredited Add+vantage modules each year. A specialist employer-focused module has been developed in association with Jaguar Land Rover, Severn Trent Water, Enterprise-Rent-A-Car and FDM to give students unique industry insights and experiences, including an opportunity to work on a case study project based on and presented to our employer partners. Students are also provided with opportunities to network with employers to gain understanding of how large and complex organisations work and to hear first-hand from staff working in these companies what skills they will need to be successful.
