Additional services for recruiters

There are a number of events and resources we organise and host that will help you to raise your company’s profile with our students.


Our e-bulletins are targeted by year group and college, so messages can be tailored to your preferences. We also have a Careers Network e-bulletin that is for all students so if you want to target all students then this is the e-bulletinis for you!  Advertising via our e-bulletins is an ideal opportunity for your company to reach students at regular intervals during the academic year with messages that draw attention to the opening of your recruitment campaigns, specific vacancies or competitions. Find out more about our e-bulletins.

Personal Skills Award

The PSA has been designed for undergraduate students to develop, reflect upon and articulate their skills. The scheme allows students to take accredited assessed modules in transferable skills (Modular Pathway), or recognises participation in extra-curricular activities, which develop their employability (Active Pathway).

The Award has been recognised as a leader in its field, winning the AGR (Association of Graduate Recruiters) award for Graduate Development in Preparation in Higher Education. 

We encourage employers to take part in the Personal Skills Award (PSA), the University’s prestigious employability award. Sponsorship and endorsement opportunities are available to employers.
