As a university graduate there are lots of opportunities for you once you have completed your course ranging from short term internships, to graduate jobs with a local company, to top graduate recruitment schemes. JobShop is the University’s jobs board for graduate jobs, part-time jobs and work experience opportunities which are often exclusive to Huddersfield students and graduates. However, here are a few other options for you to also try:
Top Graduate Schemes
A Graduate Scheme is an excellent way to jump start your career. It can take many formats depending on the employer; but usually allows graduates to experience many aspects of both the role and the organisation as a whole. Some are discipline specific but lots are open to graduates from any course.
An internship is a period of work experience offered by an employer to give exposure to the working environment, often within a specific industry, which relates to your field of study. Internships can be as short as a week or as long as 12 months. We offer our own internship scheme exclusively to our own graduates, the Huddersfield Graduate Programme.
Graduate Jobs Sites
There are hundreds of jobs sites out there, to make sure that you are only looking at the ones with the best quality jobs on them, we have selected a few and put them on this page for you.
Regional Graduate Jobs
You may be interested in staying in Yorkshire after your studies, or be looking for a job close to your home, or even just fancy a change of scenery. Different UK areas have their own specific jobs sites for opportunities in that particular region.
For certain job sectors, the best way to break into the industry is by using a sector-specific recruitment agency. We have compiled a list of the most useful agencies for you here.
It may be that you are wanting to explore your postgraduate study options in order to gain more specialist knowledge or to gain a qualification for a particular career path.
