How can you recruit our Masters and Undergraduate Students?

Our experienced team will help you connect with our international cohort of students and alumni. Talk to us and we’ll tailor services to meet your needs and support your recruitment campaigns and succession plans.

There are numerous ways to tap into this large pool of talent including:

Publicise vacancies and events: we can advertise your vacancies and events to our students and alumni – at no cost to you. We can also target your vacancies to draw in a specific audience. Just email our team to find out more.

Company presentations: these provide a great opportunity to raise the profile of your business and to network with potential clients. Through our career insights series, you can also share your expertise in a specific field with a group of students. Guest speakers have an opportunity to provide practical knowledge to support the theoretical learning that the students are attaining as part of their programme.

Skills workshops: raise your organisation’s profile with our Masters students by delivering sessions to help them develop important career-building skills – from networking to leadership.

London events: we bring Durham’s talent closer to the capital with our London events. Our annual London Career Development Conference provides the perfect platform for the city’s businesses to network with a diverse array of students. Our City Tours of London help companies raise their brand awareness, share information about their company and showcase the opportunities available to students, along with providing valuable networking.

International events: if you are interested in recruiting on a global scale, we regularly hold events and workshops around the world. Your organisation could host an event, conduct a presentation, or participate in the networking sessions we organise.

Business projects: gain all the energy, knowledge and insights of an MSc student with a business project. During a three-month project, a student will tackle a business issue facing your business. Once completed, you’ll receive a full report on their findings.
