Advertise your vacancies using CareerHub

Recruit free-of-charge from our pool of more than 12,000 students

If you're a registered company (including recruitment agencies) or a charity, you can use our CareerHub service to advertise paid part-time, vacation or graduate opportunities to our current students and graduates. If you're a UK-registered charity, you can also advertise suitable voluntary opportunities.

How it works

You will need to read our terms and conditions and register before posting your first vacancy. After registering, you can advertise vacancies as and when you have them. We aim to publish all adverts within two working days, as long as all information provided is accurate and appropriate.

This service is free to use but we do ask you to complete our feedback form to let us know a few details once the closing date for your vacancy has passed.
