Graduate job sources

We can help if you are looking for a job. We advertise thousands of jobs every year on behalf of a wide range of employers - local, national and international - and we link to many professional job sites which have jobs suitable for new and recent graduates.

Graduate Jobs Monday new logo

Search our Jobs Online database for details of job vacancies for after graduation. We advertise immediate vacancies for new and recent graduates, and upcoming vacancies for those graduating next summer.

Plus, every Monday we advertise the latest graduate jobs and careers news on our Facebook and Twitter pages, so please follow us to keep up to date.

Sign up to get email alerts when vacancies are added to the database which match your interests.

You can also search for jobs within Build My Career under the My Jobs tab. Login in with your UoB student profile here, or for graduates or if you are using a personal email use this link.

If you have any concerns that an advertised job may be fraudulent, we recommend that you visit SAFERJobs, a non-profit, joint industry and law enforcement organisation which features information and advice on job scams.

Researching your career

As well as searching via job websites, looking at Labour Market Information (LMI) can help you make realistic plans for your career by giving you a better understanding of what kinds of jobs are available and where they are. Read more about LMI.

You can also search for businesses and organisations by location and sector using resources such as Kompass.
