Job Adverts

There are a two services we can offer you to help with your recruitment.


We can arrange for any advert you send us to be placed on an internal web site and/or emailed around to all the relevant students.

Please send a plain text email to simonm@cs.bris.ac.uk detailing the details of the job. No attachments/images etc.


Alternatively we can arrange for you to spend a day in our department.

We can, for example, arrange a space for you to put up a stand, a room in which to conduct interviews and maybe the opportunity to give a presentation to students interested in your company.

For this more involved service we will charge £ 1000 to cover our costs.

If you are interested in this last service please contact Simon McIntosh-Smith at the address below who will be able to assist you in determining your requirements.
