Recruit our students and graduates

Essex has a worldwide reputation for top quality teaching and research. Our graduates are:

  • enterprising and prepared for their future
  • creative - applying their understanding to enrich the world
  • globally engaged and ethically aware
  • scholarly and equipped for life-long learning

You can advertise both student and graduate vacancies using our free Essex CareerHub vacancy advertising service or exhibit at careers fairs to meet our students face-to-face.

Internships and work placements

Get some fresh thinking by engaging our students and graduates through internships or work placements.

  • Internships involve students or graduates working on a specific project or simply providing additional resource.
  • Work placements are part of a student's course and inform a piece of assessed academic work.

Raise your profile

We can help you raise your profile on campus and attract students with workshops, speaker sessions or presentations. We can also organise interviews on campus so you can recruit students and graduates at no cost.
