Information for Employers

Our basic vacancy promotion service is free.  We promote part-time or casual vacancies on our online jobs board, Guild of Students vacancy boards as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages.  For internships and graduate work, you can advertise through the University’s Careers Network – for details please click here.

Last year we advertised over 5854 vacancies from 224 employers.  In total, 2409 University of Birmingham students secured part-time or vacation work through the service and they earned over £3 million in wages.

Employers are pleased with our service, reporting an average satisfaction rating of 9.3 out of 10.  One employer said, ‘Both the number and the quality of the students who have applied have been marvellous.’ Another told us that ‘the whole process was very simple and smooth for us’.

We are proud of our students and confident that, by recruiting through our service, you will find outstanding employees.  By joining our valued community of employers, you will not only help young people financially but also give them vital experience of the world of work to support their graduate employment prospects.

How to advertise with us

We will only advertise roles that guarantee an hourly rate of at least National Minimum Wage (up to 16 hours per week during term, and full-time during vacations).  All vacancies must comply with our Code of Practice:  please click here to download.

You’re more than welcome to contact us if you’d like to discuss your vacancy on 0121 415 8960 or jobs@guild.bham.ac.uk

Paid services

To maximise the number of applications you receive, you can take advantage of our additional services:

  • We can organise drop-in days for you to meet students face-to-face: we will book a dedicated room for you and promote the opportunity to our students.
  • We offer poster displays in our students’ union.

For more details please email jobs@guild.bham.ac.uk or call 0121 415 8960.

Jobs fairs

Our jobs fairs are popular with students because they offer the opportunity to meet employers, learn about opportunities and ask questions.

We’re planning three jobs fairs for 2018-19 but please note that these dates are still provisional:

  • Tuesday 25 September
  • Wednesday 07 November
  • Wednesday 23 January

Watch this space – we’ll be taking bookings soon.  You can contact a member of the team on 0121 415 8960 or jobs@guild.bham.ac.uk
