Local Companies Placement Fair a great Success!

Thank you to those companies and students who attended our inaugural Local Companies Placements Fair. We had about 60 students attend and 6 local companies. It was a great success!

The local companies that I spoke to afterwards (House of Hud, Graduate Recruitment Bureau and Crafted Atom) were very impressed with the quality of students that attended. Well done!

I know that lots of you gave your CVs to companies. I am sure that many of you will be contacted by those companies.

There are still lots of vacancies with House of Hud, Graduate Recruitment Bureau and Crafted Atom. Search on JobTeaser.

Thanks again for attending a great event!

Placements Fair featuring Local Companies

This year, we have a new event – a Placements Fair for local companies only.

It will be in Mithras Canteen, 5-7pm, this Thursday (15th February). You do not have to be at the event for the whole two hours!

The companies attending include:

  • Crafted Atom
  • House of Hud
  • Graduate Recruitment Bureau
  • Rullion
  • West Control Solutions
  • Crunch Accounting

Check out these companies’ vacancies on JobTeaser. Some will be accepting CVs at the event.

There will be more attractions such as:

  • JobTeaser will have a photo booth to take portraits suitable for your JobTeaser and LinkedIn profiles
  • Placement staff and Placement Mentors will be available to give general placements advice

This is going to be a great opportunity to apply to companies and to increase your knowledge regarding placements.

See you on Thursday!

Dear all,

Computacenter is coming to present a mock assessment centre. It will be on Thursday 8th February, 1pm till 3.

The company provides computer services to public and private sector customers.

The mock assessment centre will give you information regarding the company and also very useful general help with any assessment centre.

All welcome but it is very important to attend if you have an interview with them for the Business Management (IT Services) role the next day.

Please email me at l.rush@brighton.ac.uk to book.

Great Opportunities with Computacenter!

Hi all,

Computacenter provides computer services to public and private sector customers.

Their roles are based in central London and Hatfield, Hertfordshire. They usually take on about five Business Management (IT Services) placement students each year.

This is a fantastic company to work for. In addition, they are offering you a fast track application process. If you would like to be considered for an interview, please email your CV to me at l.rush@brighton.ac.uk as soon as possible.

I have attached the job description: Business Management – Industrial Placement-18criyl

You do not need to have any specific IT knowledge to apply. They accept applications from all degree disciplines not just IT as this is a business placement not a technical IT placement.

We have two students working at Computacenter this year.

Jade Guest worked for the company two years ago. She loved the experience. She was ‘embedded’ with companies in the City, where she managed a team of engineers, ensuring the smooth running of major companies’ IT systems. How exciting!

Best of luck!

Dear all,

Happy new year!

  • How to answer those questions

The session will be on Wednesday 17th January, 1pm till 2pm. Please email me at l.rush@brighton.ac.uk to book.

Thank you!
