Information for Employers

We work closely with employers to encourage and facilitate opportunities for student-employer engagement. Whether it’s advertising vacancies through our dedicated careers platform, collaborating on a project, or delivering a guest talk, we are always keen to hear from employers who are interested in getting involved.

Advertise your vacancies

We work with employers recruiting into a range of vacancies, including graduate jobs, internships, and local, part-time and vacation work.

Our new Careers & Employability Centre is an online platform exclusive to students and alumni at both UCSD and South Devon College, allowing them to search and apply for jobs and opportunities, book onto events and explore employer profiles.

Recruit a skilled graduate through STEM Graduates into Business

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Devon can now recruit skilled, recent graduates within the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) fields and receive an incentive payment of up to £3,600.

The STEM Graduates into Business project, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), supports SMEs working across Devon to recruit recent graduates with fresh, innovative ideas, on a six to twelve month internship. Led by the University of Plymouth, the project is run in partnership with UCSD, Plymouth College of Art, University of Exeter, City College Plymouth and Petroc.

Contribute your knowledge and expertise to curriculum development

Through Industry Liaison Panels, we consult employers, professionals and alumni on the design, development and approval of our programmes to ensure they meet industry needs.

Panels are held on an annual basis and also invite employers to advise on topics such as student/graduate employability and the professional development needs of staff.
