Advertising vacancies to students and graduates in Scotland

Scottish universities’ careers services work in close collaboration for the benefit of all their students and graduates. This includes encouraging and enabling employers to post their graduate vacancies and work experience opportunities or internships as widely as possible, ideally to all Scottish universities’ careers websites.

In common with the UK HE careers sector in general, many Scottish HE careers services have either transitioned to a different vacancy platform or will do so in the coming months, at which point(s) this page will be updated.

As of 11 April 2019, the following are the current vacancy posting arrangements for Scottish universities.

The universities named below enable employers either to display their vacancy solely at the University to which they are posting (via the linked pages below) or to post to all the Scottish Universities in this grouping of TargetLinkScotland universities, FOR FREE.
