Employers

We are keen to work with organisations of all sizes across all sectors.

As well as access to Brunel’s excellent students and graduates, you also have access to the Professional Development Centre's facilities and knowledgeable staff to assist in your search for talent.

Our Careers Consultants, Placement and Internship Advisers and Employer Engagement Team can provide expert advice on appropriate recruitment strategies, and help you get the best out of our graduate and current student talent.

We regularly organise many smaller events on campus, giving you the opportunity to meet Brunel students and raise the profile of your organisation on campus. 

If you are interested in exhibiting at major events, the next Careers, Placement and Part-time Work Fair will take place on Tuesday 30 May 2017.  Take advantage of this valuable opportunity to meet keen and talented students looking for full-time graduate jobs, placements and part-time jobs.  Exhibition spaces are limited, so please contact careers-fairs@brunel.ac.uk or phone the Employer Engagement team on 01895 265778 to secure a place or for more information.

Mentoring: Women in Engineering - Mentoring brings huge benefits in personal development both to those who are mentored, and those who mentor. Many large organisations, including those in engineering, recognise this win-win situation, and run schemes for their own employees or for schoolchildren.

Mentoring for the Women in Engineering programme will put you, or your organisation, in contact with prospective employees with a technical education who are preparing for the workplace. As the ‘mentees’ will be academically qualified to pursue Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration, we are seeking mentors of at least equal standing (recognised professionals), although they need not be CEng.

 Mentors will be required to undertake our programme’s training, and agree to the code of conduct of the programme. There will be opportunities for mentors to network with each other. If you are interested in mentoring with the Women in Engineering programme, please contact the programme manager, Giselle Hayward at Giselle.Hayward@brunel.ac.uk
