Advertising vacancies and opportunities

Advertise your opportunities to University of Birmingham students

We know that you have some great opportunities on offer in your organisation. We can help you advertise these to our current students and graduates.  

Advertise graduate and internship opportunities

Online vacancies and opportunities board

Promote your organisation on our Employer Directory and advertise your graduate vacancies, placements, and internships by registering on our online vacancies and opportunities board, Careers Connect. You can create a profile for your organisation that will be included in our Employer Directory and upload your opportunities free of charge.

The process is simple and user-friendly but we have a handy Careers Connect user-guide (PDF - 823KB). You may also find our ‘Top Tips on advertising vacancies (PDF - 1.45KB)’ and a helpful video below for further instruction. Once your organisation has been approved, you have direct access to update your profile and upload your opportunities at your own convenience.

Vacancy advertising terms and conditions

Careers Connect key definitions

There are lots of terms used in Careers Connect to define our students or opportunities. Some of the key terms are defined below:

  • Graduate – a student who has undertaken a bachelor’s degree (e.g. BA, BSc, BEd)
  • Post Graduate – a student who has undertaken a masters or further study on top of their bachelor’s degree (e.g. MA, MSc, PGCE)
  • Internship – a temporary paid position where a student works as part of your business, both fulfilling a business need and gaining skills through training
  • Placement – a temporary position of up to one year, which forms part of a student’s degree (also known as a year in industry or sandwich year)
  • Volunteering – an unpaid role where students provide a service for a charity or not-for-profit business
  • Work Experience – an unpaid opportunity for students to gain experience of an industry, perhaps through job shadowing. The opportunity should not fulfil a business need
