"I had a great day and we were very well looked after! The room was superb, a projector and laptop were set up for us before we arrived and we had plenty of room for our exhibition stand and promotional materials. Thank you again for your help in making yesterday a great success for Gradcracker."

Interviews on campus

We can provide interview facilities for you on campus, and can even arrange your timetable for you.

This service is particularly useful if you are recruiting via our jobs board and want to interview students for local part-time or vacation work. We simply agree a date with you, advertise your opportunities, collect applications for you and, after you have pre-selected, contact the students and organise your timetable. All you have to do on the day is come along and interview.

You can also use our facilities to interview for graduate opportunities and for placements. You are also welcome to include interviewees from other local Universities if you wish.

Facilities are available all year round. For more information, or to discuss options, please email or contact us on 01274 234991.
