Free recruitment support for Chamber members from Sheffield Hallam University

24th February 2014

A large proportion of our students are locally based, or opt to remain here after graduation so we are keen to develop links with local organisations to make it easier for you to reach our students and graduates, and vice versa.

Increasingly, many employers are appointing graduates to roles that were previously seen as for experienced candidates only, given the significant work experience and transferable skills for employment they come armed with. A significant number of our students have undertaken a year's work placement as part of their degree, and so are ready to contribute from day one. This does not necessarily have to be at a graduate level position, many of our graduates begin they career with an administrative role for instance. Free recruitment services for employers Employers can register free-of-charge with the careers service and add unlimited vacancies, which the university will then promote to over 50,000 students and graduates. Once registered, businesses can take advantage of other services the university offers, providing projects for groups of students through the 'Venture Matrix' or offer placement opportunities for students to join your team. Other opportunities include: Free attendance at two, large scale, on campus 'Work While You Study' fairs each year where you can meet thousands of students face to face Dedicated space on campus to hold recruitment and selection events Free events advertising and promotion Free stand spaces on campus to promote your vacancies and organisation at a time to suit you Pre-organised and promoted employer presentations where you can meet groups of students and graduates and promote your opportunities to them The careers and employment service at Sheffield Hallam University currently works in partnership with over 2,500 employers to advertise vacancies to students and graduates. Visit our recruitment website for more details about our responsive, professional and free vacancy advertising service. Register online at: We are arranging a free to attend mini-fair on Thursday 13 March, 47pm and would like to invite you to attend. The event will be held in our Careers and Employability centre in Sheffield City centre. The first two hours will be a chance for you to meet our students and other exhibitors. The final hour will be a question and answer session, offering students the opportunity to ask you questions. This section is optional, so please let us know if you would like to be involved. As many of our employers are ad-hoc recruiters, it is important that students are aware of your organisation, and then they will hopefully look out for your job adverts. This event will be an ideal way to do this. For more information contact Matthew Parry (Graduate Employment Co-ordinator) on 0114 225 2143 or Victoria Bacon (Student Employment Co-ordinator) on 0114 225 2147 or email
