You can advertise jobs and placement opportunities with us free of charge.

We engage with employers, charitable organisations and graduate startups to promote opportunities that support the employability of UCA students and recent graduates.

Connect with highly skilled, talented and creative UCA students. Create your Company Profile free of charge by visiting our job vacancies site.

Please note we reserve the right not to advertise vacancies which may be deemed to be unsuitable. For more information on this, or any other aspect of our services to employers, please contact us:

We can advertise vacancies and work experience opportunities for students and graduates. These can be full or part time, freelance, placements or volunteering opportunities.

We do not advertise any vacancies that, to our knowledge:

  • Do not comply with the National Minimum Wage legislation or any other aspect of employment law. We therefore do not advertise any unpaid placements/internships/work experience opportunities, unless covered by a specific exemption to the legislation, for example, work for a registered charity or part of a higher or further education course.
  • Discriminate on the basis of race, gender, disability, religion, age, sexual preference, or other protected characteristics unless there is a genuine occupational requirement, covered by the relevant legislation, which permits exemption from this legislation OR the vacancy aims to provide people from a particular group (or groups) the opportunity to compete for work in areas in which they have been under-represented or absent and this aim is sanctioned under relevant legislation.
  • Have a reward structure which is entirely or principally commission-based; or which involve unreasonable financial investment by the applicant.

For more information:


In both the above cases, employers must quote the relevant section of the applicable Act when submitting the vacancy.

In addition, we do not provide recruitment services involving pre-selecting or matching candidates for the job vacancies we advertise on our vacancy platform on behalf of employers.
