Graduate recruitment

Why choose a UWE Bristol graduate?

Graduates for the real world

If you want a hit-the-ground-running graduate, look no further – 95% of our students are in work or further study six months after graduating, a testament to our focus on education for the real world.

UWE Bristol graduates are:

  • amongst the most employable in the country, thanks to a curriculum focused on education for the workplace
  • likely to have gained relevant work experience before they graduate, so you get work-ready talent educated for the real world, well-prepared to get on with the job
  • well-versed in latest best practice, so can help to update your business’s knowledge base
  • a flexible resource, available as consultants on short-term projects or as full-time team members.

Graduate recruitment services

As a source of exceptional talent, we can help you find the right graduates for your business. Graduate recruitment and selection is much more effective with a little help from our professional Employer Partnership Services Team. The team can advise you on vacancy content as well as assisting you to advertise and market your vacancy.

Be positive about diversity

UWE Bristol is an inclusive university with a diverse student population. We invite you to work with us to ensure that students from groups that are currently under represented in the graduate labour market are given networking opportunities and work experience that build knowledge and confidence in career planning and the job application process.
