Our advice for getting a good response from applicants

We advise the following to get a good response to your advert:

  • Include salary information.
  • Put a specific closing date.
  • Submit your vacancy preferably 2 weeks before the closing date; this gives applicants time to research the job and write a good application.

Recruitment agencies

The Workplace is happy to advertise vacancies sent to us by recruitment agencies, provided all the following criteria are met:

  • The advert is for an actual vacancy with a named employer.
  • You tell us the name of the employer; however the decision to advertise their name to our students will be at your discretion.
  • You will only interview applicants for the employer stated in the advert, and not for any general recruiting purpose. You will not use our system to harvest applicants' CVs.
  • You will not charge our users to apply for a job you have sent to us.
  • You will inform us if any University of Wolverhampton graduate was successful in securing the role for our data gathering purposes.

Access to Placement Schemes?

In addition to an advertising service we also offer a range of schemes that you could use to offer students and graduates opportunities and experience. Some of them also offer access to financial support or discounts. For further advice: Placement Schemes
