Employer in Residence

Mock interviews

These sessions are usually 40 minutes long, with 30 minutes used for the actual interview and the last 10 minutes for feedback. Employers often like to send junior members of their HR or Graduate Recruitment team so that they can familiarise themselves with the interviewing process and gain some experience.

CV and application form checks

These sessions are extremely popular among our students, as they get the opportunity to receive feedback on their CV or application form from established professionals within the organisations they are thinking of applying to. They are usually held in the afternoon for approximately two to three hours. We allocate 20-minute appointment slots to students who can call and reserve a place in advance.

How does it work?

We will book an interview room in the Careers, Student Development & Outreach office for you and will deal with all the advertising and administration free-of-charge. We can also target these sessions to a specific group of students that you are particularly keen to approach in order to help you make the most of your time. These sessions are advertised to students as for practice only and it is made clear that employers will not be taking students into account for actual recruitment purposes.

What will my organisation gain from doing this?

By running this type of session, your organisation will establish a very friendly and approachable profile on campus, whilst at the same time meeting face-to-face with high-calibre students who are keen to apply for your graduate or placement schemes. Furthermore, your members of staff who will be running these sessions will gain first-hand experience of interviewing and CV screening.

How can I book these sessions?

Please contact the Employer Engagement team to discuss this in more detail and to arrange a suitable time and date.
