Work with our students

The challenge of attracting and retaining the right talent to your organisation, overcoming skills shortages and creating a diverse workforce is one that many companies face.

At Teesside support you promote your brand to our students and overcome these very real challenges in one or number of ways:

  • welcome you as a visiting speaker on key modules across all years
  • arrange a student visit to your organisation
  • invite you to take part in our ExpoSeries student recruitment and showcase events on and off campus
  • work with our students on live industry projects
  • run a hackathons or competitions on or off campus
  • take a student on a year-long placement or short-term internship
  • arrange staff or student exchanges
  • commission paid work for our students or graduates as an extra-curricular activity
  • take on a degree apprentice at level 6 or 7
  • become a strategic partner and plan all of the above.

When are our student showcase and recruitment events?

Each year we run a series of interactive student recruitment and showcase events giving you the opportunity to view the student work and promote your job and placement to our students.

Our annual Exposeries events are designed to showcase student talents to employers seeking to fill placement opportunities and graduate roles.
