Tap into the University's pool of talent

What does the University of Hertfordshire offer?

The Employment Service at the University of Hertfordshire (UH) provides a responsive and innovative service, focused on individual employer needs, making it easy for you to recruit the right candidates for roles in your organisation.  

UH has more than 24,000 students, studying a wide range of subjects, covering everything from astrophysics to fine art. 

The Employment Service provide effective assistance to employers looking to tap into our student talent whether it be for internships, placements, work shadowing, part-time jobs or permanent graduate roles.

Permanent graduate roles and schemes

These are roles aimed at new or recent graduates.  A graduate scheme is a structured training programme run by an employer to develop future leaders of their organisation.

Placements (often referred to as Sandwich placements)

These are paid opportunities which can be 36 to 48 weeks and are taken between the second and final academic years, supported by the University through monitoring and visits. 

Work Shadowing

Mainly aimed at first-year students, this helps to provide an insight into working in a specific industry or employer for 1 or 2 days.  Work shadowing is often used by employers to talent spot future placement students and raise the profile of their organisation

Part-time jobs or short-term work experience (e.g. a specific project for your organisation).

Most students will be looking for part-time work at some point during their studies.  Part-time work not only helps student financially but also provides invaluable work experience.

SME internship opportunities (match funded by Santander)

The University’s graduate internship scheme offers SME’s the opportunity to hire a UH graduate on a 4-12 week internship where they will be paid £1200 per month/£300 per week.
