Connecting employers and students

Our students have the drive and talent, you have the opportunities, and we build the networks - so let's connect and harness these valuable resources.

How we work with employers

Careers, Internships & Employment make it easy to recruit some of New Zealand's top recent and future graduates for internships, research, work-integrated learning and project work, and voluntary and paid employment.

We can help with every step of the recruitment process from creating a person specification to advertising a vacancy or opportunity and conducting interviews.

Employers, community and industry can advertise jobs, internships and scholarships on UC CareerHub, and can connect with students directly at Careers Fairs and events throughout the year.

Our on-campus interview rooms help to streamline the interview process when you are ready to select new team members from the talented pool of candidates UC produces each year. Contact us to book a room.

Our annual fairs are an excellent way of raising your organisation’s profile with future graduates. During the academic year we host a series of careers fairs including the Law Recruitment Evening, Commerce Careers Fair, Engineering and Science Careers Fair and ICT Careers Fair. Find out how Careers Fairs work.

Presentations are a fantastic way to raise your profile on campus with our students. There is a range of options available to present here at UC and we provide the venue and equipment at no charge to you. Most of our employer events are held in the Undercroft – the vibrant hub of student life in the centre of our campus.
