"UEA students are positive and enthusiastic, give us cutting-edge knowledge and understand research"
Simon Hooton, Broads Authority

Companies around the world recognise the value of attracting our best graduate talent. That's why they collaborate with us to  build relationships with our students, and prepare them for the challenges of today's industries. Here are a few ways that companies like yours connect with our ambitious students.

Attending Fairs and Events


We host more than 650 careers-related events a year, giving students a clear idea of what's out there. This includes the annual UEA recruitment and opportunities fair, in which over 100 businesses build links with exceptional future employees.

Join Us at a Future Event 


We deliver a wide range of careers event, including our ‘Working in’ series, where you can speak directly to students about your organisation, your opportunities and what a career in your industry looks like. Our events and fairs are a fantastic way to promote your brand to 17,000 students and 4,000 recent graduates. To get involved in any of them, please contact our team at access.talent@uea.ac.uk.

Free Vacancy Advertising


We offer a free online resource that enables companies to reach students and graduates all year round via their mobile devices. Through MyCareerCentral, you can advertise vacancies, such as graduate schemes/graduate jobs, part-time student jobs, internships and volunteering placements. The resource is open to graduates for up to three years after they leave, meaning you've got a bigger pool of talent to choose from.

Passing On Knowledge


Our students are ambitious, and crave a challenge. You could be the company that inspires them. Every year, we work with proactive businesses who offer mentoring, speak at events, and help us develop graduates who are truly ready to meet the demands of your organisation.

Share your experience with ambitious students.

Our students graduate into roles at prestigious institutions in all sectors. But you don't need to be a multinational corporation to recruit great talent. Talk to us today at careers@uea.ac.uk about how we can help you with your recruitment needs, or make a project happen.
