Information for recruitment agencies

Recruitment agencies should not post general adverts promoting their agency or website. Every advert must relate to a specific vacancy or a recruitment campaign for a specific employer.

We understand many agencies wish to keep the names of their employer clients confidential. You should set up a profile in your own name and classify yourself as an “Agent for employer”. When you input a vacancy, you will find a field in the form where you can add the name of the employer. This should be ticked if you wish hide it from students. No vacancy will be accepted unless the end-employer is disclosed to the Careers & Employability Centre.

If more than one agency submits the same vacancy we will act in favour of the first agency to contact us unless instructed otherwise directly by the employer. If an agency submits a vacancy already advertised by the employer in their own right or the employer submits a vacancy already sourced through an agency, we will advertise the employer’s own vacancy (removing / rejecting the agency versions as necessary) unless instructed otherwise directly by the employer.
