Employer Services

Degree Apprenticeships

We are currently developing our Degree Apprenticeship offering, and have the facility to deliver and provide support in a wide variety of Degree Apprenticeship courses. We are keen to work with companies who are looking to utilise their apprenticeship levy. 

CPD Modules/Day Release/Workshops

We can work directly with your company to develop one-day workshops, singular programmes and CPD modules to challenge and progress your workforce. We truly believe that continual personal development is key to having an adaptable and knowledgeable workforce.

Strategic Partnerships 

We actively encourage employer engagement within all of our degree programmes and are looking for strategic partners and sponsors of the diverse range of courses that we offer. From Policing to Cyber Security, we are delivering programmes that are practical and well informed

Conference Hire

We have the facility to host a variety of events and conferences. Catering can also be ordered through our onsite café Cristina's Kitchen.

Student Recruitment Opportunities

Job Vacancies

Whether you are recruiting for one role or several, the Careers Zone can help to facilitate the advertising of your job opportunities directly to your students.

Employers can email the Talent Team with relevant job roles, and we will then promote these directly to our students.

  • Graduate roles 
  • Placements
  • Part-time jobs 
  • Paid internships
  • Temporary or seasonal work 
  • Volunteering (third sector or charities)
  • Work shadowing
Employer-focused Student Events

A fantastic way to raise awareness of your company is through our dedicated on-campus events with the opportunity to promote options available to students. These events can be targeted at relevant courses or open to all. 

  • Employer-led presentations 
    On a topic of the employers choosing, aimed directly at the relevant cohort of students. These can be timetabled into academic schedules.
  • Employer-led workshops 
    Working with students to develop their employability skills. These can be timetabled into academic schedules, providing a valuable insight into their organisation and the opportunities available. 
  • On-campus recruitment 
    If you have a large number of roles to recruit for we encourage employers to have an on-campus presence. We can provide interview space. 
CU London Events

We are committed to keeping all employers up to date with ongoing events which they can be a part of, including careers fairs, academic events and local community events.

CU London Mentoring Scheme

There are many employers that are keen to contribute to student development and skills, but are not currently in a place to engage students in direct employment.

These employers may wish to consider mentoring. It is important that no employer should feel unable to contribute because of lack of paid experience.

Benefits of mentoring include increased engagement with the community, positive brand awareness and impacting the futures of young people.
