Whether you are looking for part-time staff, have a graduate job to fill or are interested in employing an intern, the Career Success Team can help you. Our employer jobs portal MyBNUFuture is FREE to use and is the best place to promote vacancies to our current students and recent alumni.

We can also arrange on-campus or virtual events, host recruitment days and interviews for our students, and we run a number of Careers and Recruitment Fairs throughout the year. Please email our employer engagement team for more information or to be added to our mailing list.

We are a Disability Confident employer.

Buckinghamshire New University students study in specific vocational areas, with the aim of becoming industry specialists, or transferring their skills to general graduate opportunities.

We support all our students to develop their strengths in:

  • Leadership and self-development
  • Developing knowledge and applying it
  • Being creative
  • Demonstrating social and ethical awareness and responsibility

Please note: We don’t recommend that students commit to more than 20 hours per week during term time. This can of course be extended outside of term time. Salaries vary from the National Minimum Wage (NMW) and upwards.

All of our courses encourage students to get involved with work experience and placements that are related to their chosen specialty area.  For most students, this will happen outside of term-time, but some courses offer industry-based modules .

How you can get involved:
We can help you make contact with our students for summer internships, placements, work shadowing or any other projects. If you’re not sure whether you should be paying your intern, visit Employment rights and pay for interns for guidance.

We work with academic colleagues to enhance opportunities for our students so they can better understand the workplace through projects and shadowing, and mentoring relationships.

To promote your opportunities to our students, login to or register for MyBNUFuture.

Please note: We will not advertise unpaid opportunities that replace a paid position.

Volunteering is a great way for students to develop skills relevant to their course, or to work on their leadership skills and explore how to work in a team. Through their fundraising and volunteering, our students are making a great contribution to our local community.

To promote a volunteering opportunity and to find out more about what our students are up to, please contact the Buckinghamshire New University Students’ Union.
