Students

Services to employers

We liaise with employers every day and have a comprehensive network of about 4,000 organisations of all sizes, all interested in Bath students. This is part of what makes us so effective at working with students to improve their employability – we hear directly from employers about what they want and how the students can best demonstrate it.

In essence, we act as a very big ‘shop window’ for the University – did you know that we:

  • are visited by over 300 employers every year
  • advertise opportunities with up to 800 employers at any one time
  • advise employers on recruitment strategy
  • arrange joint meetings with academic departments and employers, or refer employers on as appropriate
  • regularly update employers about changes to programmes and new courses.

However, we know that employers, and alumni, will often contact you with opportunities or offering to arrange sessions. This page aims to help you by setting out what we already do – and reassuring you that we can help you by ensuring your students get all the opportunities without information overload or event clashes!

Do you get requests from employers and agencies to advertise vacancies?

We run a comprehensive, free, vacancy advertising service for employers. Details of all sorts of opportunities are advertised on MyFuture (which often has more vacancies than national sites) where all students can view them.

If you forward any details to us via our generic mailbox, recruit@bath.ac.uk, we will upload them for you. This means your students need only look in one place for great vacancies! Alternatively, please refer employers to our web page on vacancy handling with details on how to submit adverts.

Do you get requests from employers and agencies to block email your students?

Please feel free to forward the request to us via recruit@bath.ac.uk.  We already offer a target email service to selected student groups on behalf of employers. This operates as a chargeable service. If you choose to offer this to some employers without charge, then you may be inundated!  To avoid information overload, we ensure that the emails are brief, small capacity, relevant and only sent to limited year/subject groups. We also spread them out if there are several in any one week.

Do you get requests from employers to set up recruitment events for your students?

Hopefully you already know about our centralised recruitment events (Bath only) and skills development (Bath only) programmes. If an employer asks you if they can come on campus, whether just to speak to your students, or to all, then please do get in touch. We can then do our best to ensure that no clashes of interest for the students arise from what we already have in place. Our Employer Services Team will be happy to book in an employer presentation or advise on the current diary. Contact them on 01225 385276 or email recruit@bath.ac.uk.
