Finding jobs and work experience

We offer a range of services to support your students find jobs and relevant work experience.

Vacancies Online advertises 4000+ graduate jobs, internships, industrial placements, volunteering and paid part-time work opportunities every year for organisations specifically targeting Newcastle University. The site is updated daily and students can simplify their job search by registering for personalised email alerts.

Our recruitment fairs, employer presentations and sector specific events allow students the opportunity to meet local and global graduate recruiters face-to-face, make a great first impression and stay one step ahead in a competitive recruitment market. 

Passport to Work is a scheme offering students with little or no work experience an opportunity to develop key transferable skills and enhance their CV. These unpaid work shadowing sessions are provided by local employers in areas such as catering, hospitality and retail.

Newcastle Work Experience offers bright and enterprising students paid project work in local small and medium sized companies (SMEs). The term-time placements are flexible around students’ timetables and the summer programme is full time for 10 weeks.
