How will you connect with our students?
Register and manage your own vacancies on our jobs board
You can promote your vacancies free of charge to all University of Plymouth students and graduates through Student Jobs.
The types of vacancies you are able to advertise through this service include graduate jobs and schemes, casual or part-time roles, and short-term summer internships / placements.
As well as advertising your vacancy on our jobs board, we also promote on our social media and directly to students. We can offer interview space on campus and assistance with shortlisting candidates.
Placements and work based learning opportunities
A 12 month placement or work based learning opportunity (also commonly referred to as a sandwich year, a year in industry, or a work placement) are managed and advertised by our placements staff within the Careers & Employability Service.
Jobs board case study
"During my final year I linked in with the Careers and Employability services and signed up to the jobs board. I found and applied to an advertised Trainee CAD Engineer vacancy. Using accelerate workshops to build my confidence and skills I applied and was I successful. Thanks to the Careers service I found and I am now working in my dream job!"
Nathan Coombes, HNC Construction – Partner Colleges
“We found that the University of Plymouth careers service provided an excellent route for us to gain contact with appropriately qualified engineers. This proved successful for both us as a company and for graduates who had recently completed their course”
