Whether you are looking for your first graduate
opportunity, a part-time job while you are studying or a placement
to enhance your employability skills, there is always somebody on
hand in The Workplace to help you.
We offer a range of recruitment services to University of
Wolverhampton students and graduates.
You can access the latest graduate vacancies, internships,
part-time jobs and employer events by logging on to our
Jobs and Events database. Look out for the Jobs and

We help you find part-time work that can be fitted around your
studies, placing students in over 2,000 part-time and temporary
jobs each year. Many are within the University itself, in a
range of clerical and IT posts, and as student helpers, ambassadors
and open day tour guides.
Off-campus there are various opportunities for students in the
West Midlands during term-time and vacations, including employment
in customer service, clerical and data processing work, web design,
computer programming, graphic design and translating.
Our team of employer liaison officers works
closely with local, regional and national companies to keep
you in touch with the latest graduate openings. We can help
you get your foot on the first rung of your graduate career ladder
and you can access our vacancies for the first three years after
you have graduated.
In Spring 2010 we organised our first international
internships, when we placed 15 graduates with employers in
The Netherlands for 11 weeks. This project was funded by
Leonardo Lifelong Learning Programme and through it we developed a
strong partnership with The Hague University, who helped us
organise the placements. In 2011/12 we successfully placed a
further 41 graduates and we are delighted that we have now secured
funding until 2013.
Placements for 2012/13 will be for 7 or 12 weeks and graduates
will be working with a wide range of organisations in The
Netherlands and in Spain (a new partnership formed this year). All
participants will take part in local language sessions before and
during their placements.

future recruitment needs, ranging from major retail companies such

recruiters such as Marston and EDS. We run a number of
Careers events each year; for example in 2010/11 and
2011/12 we hosted the Annual Recruitment
Fair which had over 35 exhibitors and were attended by over
1000 students and graduates. Look out for details on
