Business Services

University College Birmingham’s commitment to vocational education, from apprenticeships through to Masters Degrees, means we actively promote engagement with business across a variety of platforms. We can support your industry through training and support, work placements and job opportunities – and our facilities make a great backdrop for events and functions.


We offer a free service for employers seeking to recruit students. Whether recruiting for full-time, part-time, casual, seasonal staff or graduate programmes hired@UCB can help

Register your requirements with our Jobshop facility and once authorised, vacancies can be advertised on our intranet Jobshop and if you contact hired@UCB, we can promote these vacancies on our campus information screens. This service enables students to search for suitable vacancies all year round. Advertisements will remain on Jobshop for as long as you require but you will need to contact us again to re-run any internal information screen campaigns.

To register please visit UCB’s Jobshop site.

Our Drop-In facility enables employers to mix with our students in an informal environment. We provide a table and space for your display stand in areas with high student footfall, such as our hired@UCB centre, the student café’s or main reception so that you can meet and talk to students.
