Employ our students

Employability and vocational courses have been celebrated here since 1892. Our students benefit from our academics' relationships with the professions and the way we adopt our research findings into course content. At a time when the graduate job market is particularly competitive we know we give our students the edge you demand.

We offer an impressive number of ways that the commercial world can positively impact on our students and benefit from their input. Plus our Employability Team are here to support every new connection.

Have our students work for you

Advertising permanent job vacancies
The University's Job Board is available to all current LSBU students and our graduates for up to 2 years after they leave us. As an employer, you can upload your vacancy directly to it - see our guide (PDF File 196 KB) for further instructions. As well as simply advertising the role to our students, the Employability Team can, at no extra cost, provide you with a shortlist of suitable candidates, already prepared to be interviewed by you. If you'd like to know more, please contact jobshop@lsbu.ac.uk.
Recruiting a placement student
Contact us if you'd like to create a student placement offering essential commercial experience to enhance a students' degree. Read more about placements at LSBU.
Graduate internship scheme
LSBU is keen to continue to support our students even when they have graduated. So, if you're looking for a recent graduate to take up an internship or fixed-term role we are here to help. We advertise your opportunity and even shortlist suitable candidates for you to invite to interview. Internships typically last twelve weeks or over and only cost the business the salary of the intern. Find out more about internships.
Casual and part-time work
Many of our students are keen to work alongside their studies to help build up experience and offset some of the cost of university. If you have part-time or casual work available in the London area, we will advertise this to our students.
If you are aiming to recruit a large number of students, use our JobShop space to meet students face-to-face. The Employability Team will promote your recruitment process to students looking for work.
Do you need a volunteer?
Could your organisation benefit from a student volunteer to help with a specific project or the more general running of your organisation? Read more about volunteers.

If you'd like to discuss any aspect around employing LSBU's students and graduates please contact employability@lsbu.ac.uk.

Share your talents

We understand how important it is for students to benefit from real-world experiences. Having strong industry contacts play a large part in this and your involvement can make such a difference.

Developing employability skills
Students know that having a degree is not enough to secure them a great job when they graduate. They also need to show their skills and experience at interview. To support this, the university is looking for employers happy to give their time to hold mock interviews, practice assessment centres and other aspects of securing a job.
The Employability Team arrange all the logistics, match you with students and brief you and your staff. This is a great way to develop your own staff's knowledge of the recruitment process. Contact employability@lsbu.ac.uk.
Careers Fairs
We run a number of industry-specific Careers Fairs throughout the year. These are the ideal time for employers as stall holders to meet a large cross section of our student body keen to network with interested employers. For details on registering your interest, please email careersfairs@lsbu.ac.uk.
Events are advertised in our 'What's on' section.
Mentoring
If you studied at LSBU, no matter when or the subject, we encourage you to share in the mutual benefits of becoming a Student Mentor. These one-to-one partnerships help students foster a supportive network of active contacts, fulfil their potential and develop a clear vision of their future. It gives them the chance to talk, ask questions, have a sounding board and learn from the successes and failures of real life business.
As an LSBU mentor you'll never be expected to provide academic advice, personal counselling or life coaching not related to professional skills or assist with commercial activities or ventures other than objective opinions. To find out more about the scheme see full details on Mentoring page of the LSBU Alumni Association website.
