Recruit a student
By employing a Brunel student for a part-time/temporary job, or for a year long placement you not only get a valued member of staff with a fresh perspective for your department but you will also be helping them develop their skills and knowledge of the workplace. Working on campus often helps many students engage more readily with the academic environment.
Brunel has a reservoir of talented students right here on campus, many with previous skills gained before coming to university. Brunel students are flexible, adaptable, enthusiastic, trustworthy and can undertake high levels of responsibility.
