Services for business and employers

What we do

The Centre for Student Success offers a variety of opportunities for businesses and employers. We have a range of services, such as our Jobs Board, that are a useful tool for businesses and employers and we are always looking to collaborate with new partners. We also offer students and employers the option to get involved in our mentoring schemes. 

The is a lot of competition among employers to recruit graduate talent to vacancies. Our free job listing tool allows you promote available opportunities to our pool of over 17,000 current students as well as our graduates. You can list full and part-time roles, placements and internships, paid and voluntary positions on our Jobs Board.

Accredited with Approved Provider Status by the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation, the Centre for Student Success (CfSS) Professional Mentoring Scheme provides the opportunity for professionals in employment or self-employment to support, guide and inspire current UEL students and recent graduates over a four month mentoring relationship. The scheme is designed to support UEL students and graduates with developing their personal, professional and employability skills. 

How to apply
Complete a mentor application formMentors can support their mentee in:

  • Interacting, networking and learning from professionals who are further along their development journey
  • Supporting their understanding of the link between academic studies and career aspirations
  • Preparing for their career by developing an understanding of the recruitment and selection process
  • Exploring career pathways and helping them plan their career goals 
  • Improving their confidence and self-esteem
  • Understanding, developing and applying the soft/transferable skills needed in employment  

How the scheme works 

Mentors and mentees will ideally meet at least four times over a period of four months at the mentor’s place of work (ideally) or a mutually convenient location. Mentors and mentees will work collaboratively on identifying the areas of support that mentees require from their mentors. Both parties will be fully briefed at the start of the scheme and provided with support materials. The CfSS will continue to support mentors and mentees through the mentoring relationship.

The scheme is free for mentors and mentees.
