Recruitment Services for Employers

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. All of these services are free of charge.

Most of the services we offer to employers outside of our main autumn careers fair, are completely free-of-charge. To help you plan when best to target our students, we encourage you to view our student recruitment timeline.
