Recruit our graduates and students
As an employer, you can advertise vacancies for free, attend recruitment events (including our Careers Fair) and hire a placement year student or a funded intern.
Advertise a vacancy for free
Use our online jobs portal (CareerHub) to advertise your vacancies to our students and graduates.
You can advertise graduate jobs or schemes, part-time jobs, placements, internships and work experience opportunities. Students and graduates will apply directly to you.
The Sussex Careers team have been invaluable for brand-raising events. They're a pleasure to work with.”Megha Krishnakumar, Graduate Recruitment Officer
Hire an intern or placement year student
You could get funding to recruit a student or graduate through one of our internship schemes. This funding is available to a range of organisations.
All our undergraduate students can do a placement year as part of their degree, so you can employ a student from any area of study.
Attend a Careers Fair
Exhibit at our main Careers Fair on 6 November 2019 at the American Express Community Stadium. It is aimed at organisations with graduate-level roles, internships or placements.
The fair is run with the University of Brighton, meaning you get to meet students and graduates from both universities.
Why exhibit at our Careers Fair?
- 3,000+ attendees – open to all universities
- 130+ exhibitors with three floors of exhibitor space arranged by sector
- promoted nationwide
- lunch and parking included.
We run other fairs for more specific audiences.
The Law Fair takes place on the Sussex campus on 23 October 2019. New for this year, it is aimed at law and non-law students from both the University of Sussex and the University of Brighton.
Part-time Jobs Fair
This takes place on 3 October 2019. If you want to recruit students for local part-time roles, this is a good opportunity to meet potential applicants. Last year, more than 1,000 students attended.
Summer Jobs Fair
If you're offering summer vacation roles, this fair runs every February.
Mini Careers Fair
This is happening on 5 June 2019. If you're still recruiting for graduate-level roles, put yourself in front of students who are about to leave Sussex.
Meet our students at an employer event
We can also arrange recruitment and employability events such as career talks, drop-in sessions and recruitment presentations; We especially welcome Sussex alumni to give talks as part of our 'Make it Happen!' programme.
