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

Our main Careers Fair will be held in November 2021. Full details will be available here soon.

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.

Other fairs

We also run a series of fairs on campus throughout the year. The Spring Careers Fair will be held on 28 April, virtually, after which we hope that we may be able to revert to in-person events.

  • Spring Careers Fair (April 28) - If you’re recruiting for graduate-level roles, placements or summer internships, you can virtually meet relevant students, including those who are about to complete their studies at Sussex
  • Law Fair
  • Part-time Jobs Fair.

Full details will be available soon, but in the meantime, register your interest by emailing us at careersevents@sussex.ac.uk.

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. At present all our events are being held virtually.
