Employers

  • I’m a students’ union looking to recruit, how do I advertise a vacancy?

    Any NUS-affiliated students’ union can advertise a vacancy on this website. You must first set up a union profile by clicking ‘register’ on the homepage banner and selecting employer. Your union profile is your chance to communicate to potential candidates why they would want to work as part of your team. After setting up your union profile you can then add vacancies which are automatically linked to your profile.

  • I would like to access the employer brand toolkit to help me write a new advert. Where do I find this?

    You can download the employer brand toolkit, and other recruitment and selection tools and resources for Students’ Unions from the HR Hub on NUS Connect.

  • I've posted a job but did not submit the job, where is it?

    When you post a job you need to submit the job for approval. If you close your browser when you are previewing the job you won’t be able to retrieve the job advert. Once you have submitted your job and we have approved the job you can edit or delete the job via your dashboard.

  • Can a Union have more than one account to post jobs?

    No, each union can have one account to manage the Union profile and post jobs. You may want to set up a shared generic email address like [email protected] or [email protected] if more than one person needs to post jobs and manage the account.
