How to recruit our students
Whether you are looking for part-time staff, have a graduate job to fill or are interested in employing an intern, the Student Opportunities and Career Success team can help you.
You can advertise:
- Graduate roles
- Placements and internships
- Part time or casual jobs
Our employer jobs portal MyBucksCareer is FREE OF CHARGE and is the best place to promote vacancies to our current and past students.
Bucks students study in specific vocational areas, with the aim of becoming industry specialists or transferring their skills to general graduate opportunities.
We support all our students to develop their strengths in:
- Leadership and self-development
- Developing knowledge and applying it
- Being creative
- Demonstrating social and ethical awareness and responsibility

Many of our students take on part-time work while they’re studying with us. Typical roles include:
- Market research/ survey work
- Administration/ data inputting
- IT support, web design, database work
- Translating/ interpreting
We don’t recommend that students commit to more than 20 hours per week during term time. This can of course be extended outside of term time. Salaries vary from the National Minimum Wage (NMW) and upwards.
All of our courses encourage students to get involved with work experience and placements that are related to their subject. For most students this will happen outside of term-time, but some courses offer industry-based modules .
We can help you make contact with our students for your summer internship, placement, work shadowing or any other project. If you’re not sure whether you should be paying your intern, visit Employment rights and pay for interns for guidance.
We work with academic colleagues to enhance opportunities for our students so they can better understand the workplace through projects and shadowing, and mentoring relationships.
Please note: We will not advertise unpaid opportunities that replace a paid position.
Volunteering is a great way for students to develop skills relevant to their course, or to work on their leadership skills and explore how to work in a team. Through their fundraising and volunteering, our students are making a great contribution to our local community.
To promote a volunteering opportunity and to find out more about what our students are up to, contact the Bucks Students’ Union.
