Engage with our students and graduates
The Careers and Employability Centre offers a wide range of services to employers (click on each service to find out more):
- Free vacancy advertising
We operate a free vacancy advertising service for opportunities which are suitable for our current students or recent graduates. Adverts appear at our online vacancy listing and interested candidates will apply to you directly.
- One year professional placements (part of the academic programme)
- Temporary and short term work experience
The Careers and Employability Centre can help you recruit students and recent graduates for temporary work experience opportunities. Work experience is a really cost effective way of raising your profile on campus and even of trialing potential future graduate employees.
- Sussex Santander internships
The University of Sussex is a partner of Santander Universities UK and we are delighted to be able to offer a limited number of financially supported internships to eligible SMEs. We hope the programme will help you to find some talented interns and possible future employees.
