Voluntary opportunities

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community, make a difference to people around them or to develop new skills and share existing experience and knowledge. 

Part-time jobs

A part-time contract is a form of employment that carries fewer hours per week than a full-time job. Workers are considered to be part-time if they commonly work fewer than 30 hours per week.

Please note that part-time jobs must comply with national minimum wage (NMW) which varies depending on the age of the student. To find out more about NMW please click here or you can get in contact with jobshop@brunel.ac.uk 

Graduate vacancies and schemes

Graduate schemes and graduate training programmes are offered by many large employers. They typically last a year, but some extend to 18 months or even two years. It's the defined time frame and structure that normally distinguishes a graduate scheme or programme from the wider class of 'graduate job', which is the catch all term for entry-level roles that require people with graduate level education.

Summer internships

A four to 12 week opportunity which would usually run between June and September, once a students has completed his/her exams. Internships offer students a practical experience in the industry relating to their field of study. 

Placements

A validated six or 12 month work experience opportunity which forms part of a university degree programme (usually in the penultimate year of a four year sandwich course). Placements usually commence between June and September. For more information about placements please contact our placement team on placements@brunel.ac.uk

LBIC Pre-Masters placements

The scheme is part of a pre-Master’s course for international students. As part of their course students are required to complete a professional unpaid placement of 6 weeks that is related to their Master’s degree.

To find out more about these placements or to advertise your vacancy, please contact Nayna Patel, Placement Adviser for LBIC students at Nayna.Patel@brunel.ac.uk

Postgraduate internships

We have recently introduced placements/internships within a selection of our Master’s degrees. The placement generally tends to be between 12-14 weeks long and can occur at various times in the year depending on the subject area. The majority of these students already have a number of years’ worth of experience and are either looking to enhance their profile or to change career direction altogether.
