Services for employers

How we work with employers

UC Careers makes it easy to recruit some of New Zealand's top recent and future graduates for internships, research, work-integrated learning and project work, and voluntary and paid employment.

We can help with every step of the recruitment process from advertising a vacancy or opportunity and conducting interviews.

Employers, community and industry can advertise jobs, internships and scholarships on NZUniCareerHub, and can connect with students directly at Career Fairs and other employer events throughout the academic year.

Career fairs information 



Our annual fairs are an excellent way of raising your organisation’s profile with future graduates and to engage with current students for internship and summer work placements. During the academic year,  we host a series of careers fairs including the Law Recruitment Evening, Commerce Careers Fair, STEM Careers Fair and the Volunteering Expo. Find out how Careers Fairs work.


Ensure your target students are well informed about your organisation by holding a presentation here on campus. We recommend presenting to our students about your final year/graduate recruitment, summer vacation, internship opportunities and scholarships. Our students appreciate the value of face to face engagement with employers. We do not charge for these sessions and because they are very popular we recommend getting in early to secure a date. 


We are happy to advertise your evening presentations held off-campus

Ways to engage with our students

Sponsored emails

Increase your chances of reaching your target audience to promote your on-campus event or employment opportunities by emailing relevant students by subject and level of study. You are welcome to include colour graphics and photographs. We recommend less than 200 words of text. 

We do charge a fee for this service, starting from $90.00+GST. Please contact the employment coordinator for a quotation. 

Coffee drop-ins

Based in the UC Careers office, students are able to meet with your company’s representatives on an informal basis. This can be over the lunch hour or at a time to suit you.

Summertime catch-ups

Make the most of our outdoor area to meet with students and share information about your recruitment opportunities.

Pizza nights

Based in the student hub – The Undercroft Seminar Room – bring along your staff and some pizzas for a chance to network with students. Let them know more about your organisation and the opportunities you offer over a slice of pizza.

Meet and greet functions

We provide the opportunity to hold a more structured presentation directly to students. You provide the guest speakers, PowerPoint presentations and perhaps a Q&A session followed by a networking opportunity. We provide you with the venue, equipment and assist with promotion.

Careers Fairs

Annually we hold the following careers fairs across the academic year – Law, Commerce, Engineering and Science, Education and ICT, our fairs have the reputation of being New Zealand’s best university fairs, come along to see why.
