Advertise your vacancies

As an employer you can advertise your paid vacancies, internships and volunteer opportunities to our students and graduates.

Add your vacancies online

Our myCareer online portal allows you to add your vacancies directly and free of charge.  The portal is used by all Worcester students and graduates throughout their student journey, starting with searching for part time jobs, through to placement opportunities, and then finding their full time graduate jobs.

You can submit and manage your adverts for:

  • Graduate positions, with an immediate or future start date
  • Part-time work suitable for vacations or alongside study
  • Internships and placement
  • Win-Win work experience projects

Visit our careers and employability pages to begin posting your vacancy.

Win-Win short work projects

This scheme brings students and businesses together for voluntary live projects, or offers of work experience from local employers. Students can offer skills and expertise and employers can offer genuine work experience opportunities to help students develop their employability skills.

These opportunities are voluntary arrangements between the student and the employer and have not been through any approval process by the university. Advertise your Win-Win work project through myCareer using the Win-Win project posting type.

Volunteering

Our Students' Union is keen to work with local community groups and charities to provide volunteering opportunities for students. You can find out more information on the Students Union volunteering page.

Business work placements

Work placements are a period of employment undertaken by students as part of their studies with Worcester Business School. The Business School is constantly seeking to generate new placement opportunities for its students, both in the local area and nationally. They provide support for employers at all stages of the work placement process to ensure that both the employer and the student get the most out of placement experience. 

To advertise your business work placement to students, please use our myCareer platform.
