Where to start

This guide leads you through the services we offer at the University of Bristol and helps you decide which activities are best suited to you. If you wish to discuss your options in more detail then please contact us to arrange a meeting.

Manage your vacancies, promotional activities and event bookings online using your account. Don't forget to regularly review your company details and update it so that students have the most recent information about you.

Advertise your vacancies online
When recruiting, the first thing to do is to advertise your vacancies on our website. It's free to direct recruiters, simple to use and has proven to be a very effective way of reaching students and recent graduates.

Advertising and publicity
There are a range of options to increase awareness of your organisation and the vacancies you offer, including messaging students, advertising on LCD screens* and booking online advertising.

Attend a careers fair
It's a great way to get your company known on campus and meet keen students and graduates face to face. You will also benefit from lots of additional advertising. Our programme of careers fairs is one of the largest in the UK, so you can find a fair to suit your requirements.

Presentations and promotional activities
Once you have attended a few careers fairs, holding a presentation or promotional event on campus is another effective way to reach students. There are a wide range of venues, on- or off-campus, with catering and audiovisual services. It is essential that you contact us to check availability and to ensure you do not clash with any competitors.

Local employers
The University of Bristol Careers Service is committed to working with and developing links with local employers, large or small, with the aim of creating opportunities for students and graduates within the south west area. With these aims in mind we have created the SME Internship Scheme

We also offer a range of discounted services to local employers as part of our ongoing work to develop links within the region. Do you have part-time, term-time or vacation jobs suitable for current students? Would you like to attend a careers fair at a discount rate?

If you would like to find out more about any of these services, please contact the Employer Engagement Team.
