Jobs, work experience and volunteering



The JobShop is the University's own vacancy website where we advertise full-time, part-time, graduate and work experience roles.

Each year we have thousands of graduate jobs, and many of these are in our local region.

The Careers and Employability service operates impartially when advertising job opportunities and working with employers. We provide a wide range of opportunities and encourage students and graduates to conduct research to make independent decisions in relation to the ethics of the organisations advertised.



Placements are periods of work experience in your degree. Find out about these popular opportunities and how your School can help with getting a placement.
