Looking for work or an internship? Head to the CES jobs board

The University is regularly contacted by companies and organisations and asked to advertise jobs, graduate schemes, internships, and volunteering opportunities.

These are all hosted on the University’s jobs board, at https://careers.kent.ac.uk/home.html.

Log in with your Kent IT details, and you will be able to browse vacancies, find details, and submit applications. You can also use this service to keep an eye on upcoming employability workshops and events, and book a place at any that interest you.

If you’re looking for work experience or a placement, you can also sign up to KEW-NET, the University’s e-mentoring platform.

KEW-NET allows Kent graduates to connect with current students and offer you support as you start out in the world of work. Each mentor can choose which services they offer, from speaking to you on the phone or reviewing your CV, to offering internship opportunities and work shadowing events. And if you sign up to KEW-NET as a student, you can choose to become a mentor yourself as you progress through your career.

Work Experience with Channel 4

4Talent, Channel 4’s in-house recruitment group, has contacted the University to offer a range of opportunities for anyone interested in a career in the media. The deadlines for applications are difference for each scheme, so if you are interested do make sure to check the details carefully.

Production Training Scheme

Twelve month placement opportunities are available amongst a variety of independent production companies across the UK in cities such as Bristol, Belfast and Glasgow. There are sixteen spaces available and two streams to apply for, as either a Researcher or a Production Coordinator. The scheme is particularly aimed at people with disabilities, from BAME communities or disadvantaged backgrounds, because these groups are currently underrepresented in the television industry. These are paid opportunities, and offer an entry level role for those with less than 12 months experience in production.

Applications are open until the 4th June.
