Our employer engagement team can support you with your individual needs

Our employer engagement team can support you with your individual needs, whether you have a permanent graduate job opportunity, a new project concept to develop or a short term peak in workload, and need skilled, talented and work ready individuals.

Recruitment services

The Student Employment Agency offers a flexible service covering provision for short-term assignments, term contracts and beyond. The Agency plays a key part in helping students gain valuable employability skills, and gives them the chance to support themselves financially with the ethos ‘earn while they learn’.

Derby Internship Programme

The Internship programme is a fantastic way for employers to access the talent of our students and graduates to complete short-term, valuable projects. The programme can also be used to pipeline future recruitment, and many of our previous interns have gone on to secure longer-term employment where they have completed their internship.

Student Placements

Our team can guide you through the process from advertising to interviewing, to ensure you get the right student for your business. Your business is able to develop a long term relationship with a motivated and high quality individual who is able to bring smart thinking and creativity to your business.

Graduate Recruitment

The Careers and Employment Service offers all graduates a three-year promise, giving them access to support including our vacancy portal for up to three years after graduation. As an employer with graduate level opportunities, you can register on the portal and upload your vacancies or contact our team to talk through your requirements and the support we can provide you in accessing our talent.
