Vacancy guidelines for students

Careers and Employability at Keele University aims to place vacancy adverts that are accurate and as up-to-date as possible.  All information is given in good faith based on the information provided by the employer to Careers and Employability.  Job seekers must confirm for themselves that this information is accurate.

We make all reasonable efforts to ensure vacancies advertised by Careers and Employability are in accordance with discrimination legislation, including those relating to gender, age, race, disability, religion and gender orientation.

Students and graduates applying to vacancies advertised by Careers and Employability are advised to check with employers all details concerning issues such as salary, hours of work and holidays and request and sign an employment contract.

Careers and Employability will not enter into contracts between employers and students.  These must be directly between employers and students.

Students need to think carefully about the advantages and disadvantages of unpaid work experience/internships.  Please speak to Careers and Employability if you are unsure about this.
