Careers Service information for employers

The Employer Services team within the Careers Service can help employers to connect with University of Bath students and recent graduates.

The team

Our small, friendly team coordinate all of the cross-university employer activity on campus from the large Autumn Careers Fair through to parade stands and target emails. We work closely with a wide variety of employers, helping you to connect with our students and recent graduates.

Are you hoping to raise your profile or are you targeting a specific cohort? Get in touch for recommendations on how to work with our students.

To find out more, contact us to request more information on our pricing and availability. We look forward to working with you.

Vacancy advertising

We advertise your opportunities online through our Recruit@Bath system all year round. You will need to register if you haven't used the system before.

We advertise graduate positions, internships, vacation and other work experience, volunteering and funded postgraduate study. There is no charge for a basic advert, and a link to your website is automatically included.

Six-month and twelve-month sandwich placements for students studying specific disciplines are dealt with by staff in the academic departments. Please use the page on Recruiting placement students to contact the relevant staff directly.

For more information on what we advertise and our procedures, see our vacancy handling policy.

Dates for our campus events

  • Autumn 2018 / Semester 1: 8 October - 30 November (bookings open)
  • Spring 2019 / Semester 2: 5 February - 29 March (bookings will open from October)

These dates are planned to fit in with semester dates and around students' assessments in January and May.

Recruiting on campus

Presentations

Employer presentations are a major feature of our high profile programme for promoting graduate jobs. A presentation gives you an opportunity to meet students informally, and to promote opportunities within your organisation.

  • Lunchtime presentations are held in a lecture theatre on campus between 1.15pm and 2.05.
  • Evening presentations can be held on campus or in one of the hotels in town. Suggested start time is 18:30 on campus, and 19:00 off campus.

Advertising for your presentation or event is included in the cost of our administration charges.

Students sign up through our intranet so that you will know how many students to expect.

Booking

Booking is by invitation after discussion with us. We will look to ensure that your event does not clash with another aimed at the same students (wherever possible).

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Interviews

We are happy to arrange interviews and drop-in sessions in our new Manvers Street premises, subject to room availability. We will publicise your event, arrange interviewing rooms, draw up interview schedules where appropriate, and provide lunch for your interviewers.

Please contact us for further information. Please let us know if any external candidates (i.e. those who are not University of Bath students) have special needs.

Skills development programme

Each semester we run a popular programme of skills and occupational workshops. These give students opportunities to develop their employability alongside their academic curriculum, and in some cases their attendance counts towards their Bath Award. These activities can form part of students' optional Personal Development Planning (PDP).

Delivering a skills workshop or an occupational talk is an excellent way to raise your profile on campus, and because you are offering a service there is no administration charge.

Students sign up with us online, so you will know how many students to expect.

If you would like to run a workshop, please contact the Employer Services Team.

Careers fairs

Fairs provide an excellent opportunity for you to meet a wide range of students from all disciplines and years. For further details please contact Victoria Houston, our Careers Fairs Organiser on 01225 383211 or email V.Houston@bath.ac.uk.
